Students in San Jose, Calif., can no longer hold car washes to raise for money for school events because city officials say they endanger the environment.
Cheerleaders at Lincoln High School had to cancel a scheduled Oct. 20 car wash after a visit from the city’s Environmental Services Department, the San Jose Mercury News reported Friday.
“Anything that is not storm water or rain water is considered a pollutant,” said Jennie Loft, the department’s acting communications manager.
