Water restrictions are quite limited

While sprinkling is heavily restricted, power washing is not.

Editor: All Langley citizens received the terse orders regarding the watering of our lawns. Watering is permitted at even-numbered homes on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday, between 4 and 9 a.m.

For odd-numbered houses, the same time restrictions apply, but the days permitted are Sunday, Thursdays and Sundays. I presume this is to save water.

Why then are there no restrictions placed upon pressure washing? Irrespective of hours, days or house numbers, the pressure washing is evident, as cars, trucks, houses and driveways are washed with gallons of water.

Not that I have anything against cleanliness, but doesn’t this practice nullify the restrictions on water usage?
