Water from one's driveway (assuming it was built correctly and slopes to the street) runs onto the street and toward the sewer. If it's not raining, the sewer should not discharge into the river, but sometimes that discharge continues for a while (up to days) after a rain event. I'm not opposed to people washing their cars in their driveways, I was simply correcting the user who incorrectly stated that we don't have storm drains in JC.

Who the hell washes their car while it's raining?

"Rain washes pollutants into storm drains which

rivers and the ocean."

We don't have storm drains. So unless you wash it during a storm when the sewers are overflowing, you're good.


We don't have storm drains? WHAT? There's one on, like, every corner.


They're called storm drains, but they go directly to the regular old sewer. That's why every corner smells like a toilet.

Here's a little primer:

PLEEZ do not give 'Mayor w/ Mandate' any ideas for Municipal Ordinances to make it Illegal so that the city can continue its attack of Ticket Blitzes against its constituents to generate Revenue like 24/7 Parking Tickets, or my personal fave, Illegally Stored Garbage !!!

I've seen differing opinions on the legality of washing your car in your driveway. Anyone know for sure?
