In Texas, whether you rent a pressure cleaner or hire a contractor to do the pressure washing, you need to be aware that you can not simply wash it all down a storm drain.

In the state of Texas you must do one of the following to avoid being fined up to $11,000 per day:

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.
