Additional tips 
• The Regional Water Control Quality Board has asked the public to avoid washing ash into storm drains whenever possible 
• If ash is wet down, use as little water as possible
• Take vehicles to a car wash or wash over landscape using a shut-off nozzle.
• If cleaning sidewalks or driveways with a hose (normally a water waste unless for health and safety) redirect the water to landscapes and not on to the street
• Redirect downspouts to landscaped areas if washing a roof

Please note that we remain in a Stage 3 drought. For more information on our Stage 3 drought mandates please visit www.casitaswater.org under What Stage 3 Drought Means for You?
