Pressure Washing Like This Is Prohibited In Fort Collins, Colorado For 2013

As one example, we use less than two gallons per car when washing for our auto dealer clients,” said Joel Shorey, President of Wash On Wheels, “We dealt with the drought conditions in 2002 and have run as efficiently as possible for the last 11 years.

Most cities are restricting the watering of lawns since it’s the largest nonessential use of water. But effective April 5, 2013 water restrictions in Fort Collins will be much more strict.

After the fires last summer in Poudre Canyon, the ash and mud in the burned out areas ran down into the Poudre River and the water may not be usable. Since Fort Collins gets half of their drinking water from the Poudre River, they are immediately restricting all pressure washing on “siding, garages, sidewalks, driveways, and patios except as necessary for health and safety reasons.”

Other restrictions apply as well. For example, car washing for auto dealers is restricted to once per week. Other car washing must be done by hand with a bucket. If the water restrictions at this Response Level 1 aren’t enough to keep the projected water supply shortage at acceptable levels, there are three more restrictive levels that may have to be put in place.

Pressure washing companies that aren’t used to drought conditions can use far more water than they need. “As one example, we use less than two gallons per car when washing for our auto dealer clients,” said Joel Shorey, President of Wash On Wheels, “We dealt with the drought conditions in 2002 and have run as efficiently as possible for the last 11 years.”
