Now can I have a charity car wash on any day regardless of the address?
No. Unfortunately charity car washes like at home car washes are subject to the odd / even schedule. This is determined by the address of the facility hosting the car wash. Of course partnering with a professional car wash is exempt from the odd /even schedule because of their “professional exemption”. It is also a best practice for saving both water quality and quantity.

Being allowed to water everyday does not mean it is the best practice. Irrigation
should supplement rainfall. Ideally most established landscapes in periods of limited rainfall need to be watered deeply once a week. The reasonable use of our water resources is essential in the region. Use the step test and visual inspection to determine if your plants and grass need to be watered.
