The Jackson County ban on washing cars and using pressure washers will likely end this week, say officials of the Jackson County Water and Sewerage Authority.
That won’t be a moment too soon for people answering the telephones at the authority’s Jefferson offices.
“We’re getting bombarded with calls,” manager Eric Klerk told the authority last Thursday. “Most of the calls we get here… people want to wash. They want to wash their cars and pressure wash their houses.”
As of press time, officials were awaiting confirmation from the Environmental Protection Division that it has granted permission for those activities – and for an additional day of yard and landscape irrigation every week.
