When pressure washing in Florida, make sure the pressure washing discharge doesn’t go down the storm water drain.

Whether you rent a pressure washer or hire a contractor in Florida make sure one of the following is done to avoid hefty 5 figure fines in Florida:

1. Obtain permission to direct the wastewater to a Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW) through a sanitary sewer or combined sewer system at the job site.

2. Collect the wastewater from the job site and arrange for disposal at a POTW.

3. Obtain authorization to discharge to the ground by means of an exemption, notification or permit (NPDES) from the local EPA contacts. Here’s the permit (151 pages).

More info on your options.

It could take a full day before you even start pressure washing to organize compliance with the laws.

Why not just hire a pressure washing contractor in Florida who has all the necessary equipment to comply?

If you value your time you could actually be saving money by hiring a pressure washing service. They are a business and it is their job to comply with the local laws. Let me recommend the best ones in Florida.
