Are charity or fundraiser car washes allowed while we’re in water restrictions?

  • January 8, 2015

Yes, if the City is under Stage 1 or Stage 2 water restrictions, charity/fundraiser car washes can be held on the property’s designated outdoor watering day, during the allowed times.  For example, if the car wash will be held in a bank parking lot, it can be held on a Friday or a Tuesday before 10 a.m. or after 7 p.m.

If the car wash is held at a commercial car wash facility, then it can be held any day at any time. Commercial car washes are exempt to the restrictions since they control the runoff from the property and use more efficient equipment to wash the vehicles.
