Can I wash my car, truck, or boat during lawn watering restrictions or bans?
Yes; to prevent the unnecessary use of water, boats and cars must be washed with a hose equipped with a spring-loaded nozzle and a bucket filled with water. When washing a car, park it over a
non-paved or porous surface to limit water runoff. There are no daily or hourly restrictions for these activities. We do recommend that you bring your vehicle to a commercial carwash, as they clean and recycle the water, but recognize that this is not feasible for all vehicles and equipment.
