In New York you must comply with the Clean Water Act and not flush pressure washing discharge down storm water drains.

If you do you are actually breaking the law and risk being fined up to $11,000 per day in New York. To comply with the Clean Water Act you must do one of the following:

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 (NY is region 2).

More info on your options.

If you can’t be bothered trying to figure out how to comply then why not just hire someone who complies daily?
