Report Illegal Vehicle Maintenance
Washing and maintaining vehicles on City streets is illegal, and pollutes our waterways. The dirty water, vehicle fluids, and cleaning products (soaps) flow untreated through the storm drain system directly to the San Diego River.
The City of Santee is committed to keeping our waterways and beaches clean. Recently, many citizens have reported that vehicle washing, engine cleaning, and vehicle maintenance has been occurring on public streets.
The City needs your help to identify and report these illegal activities as they are occurring. If you witness any of these activities after business hours, please report them immediately to the San Diego County Sheriff’s non-emergency line at 858-565-5200. During business hours, please report to The City of Santee at 619-258-4100.
