Using a garden hose to wash down a driveway or sidewalk can use 25 gallons of water in just 5 minutes. Instead, use a broom to clean sidewalks and driveways.
A Dewatering Permit application must be filed for certain discharges to the Commission's wastewater or storm drainage systems. It is necessary to research BWSC's wastewater maps to determine whether the discharge is to a sanitary sewer, combined sewer or storm drain.
