Water-DropletImprove your home but DON’T ruin the environment in the process! While working around the house this summer, please keep in mind it is a VIOLATION of the Covina Municipal Code to wash down debris, paint, chemicals, oil, cement, grout, fertilizers, pesticides, detergents into the sidewalk, street, alley or catch basin.

DON’T: Drain a pool into the street without a permit from the City. Pool water must be treated and free of chemicals and algae before allowing it to drain onto City streets.

DO!: Obtain a no-cost (FREE) pool draining permit from Environmental Services to ensure that the water being drained will not pollute our waterways.
