I have reviewed your (draft?) staff report regarding the item scheduled for tonight's city council meeting in the matter of the Car Wash Guys (your reference MCV 91-9257).

I wish to address the portion of that report which deals with possible permitting by this Regional Board.

I understand that the company states that it only uses clean (presumably domestic) water with no additives to wash vehicles. As such, this would not constitute a discharge of pollutants and would not therefore require a permit from this Board.

Please call me if you have further questions about this matter.
