Underground sprinkling systems may be used during the times noted above.
 
In terms of pressure washing and outdoor surface washing (private – non-commercial), outdoor washing can be done for health and safety purposes only, or to prepare a surface for painting or similar treatment. Washing for aesthetic purposes is prohibited.
