Street Sweeping - South of Broad St.

Monday, August 13, 2018

Residents that live South of Broad St. are asked to move vehicles off of residential streets (if possible) between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Monday, August 13 and Tuesday, August 14. Street sweeping reduces the volume of pollutants entering local streams through the city's 900 storm drain openings. Parked vehicles reduce the effectiveness of the sweepers because most debris and pollutants accumulate in the gutter pan.

Quiet Sweep will be in the City the week of August 13:
  • Areas south of Broad St. – Monday August 13 and Tuesday August 14 
  • Areas north of Broad St. – Thursday August 16 and Friday August 17
  • Commercial areas – evenings through the week (and weekends if necessary) 
Schedule is subject to change due to weather and the amount of debris on the streets

Residents are asked to move vehicles off of residential streets between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., where possible. Parked vehicles reduce the effectiveness of the sweepers because most debris and pollutants accumulate in the gutter pan.

Residents can help reduce pollutants in our streams by using a broom, shovel and dustpan to sweep the gutter pan in front of their residence when debris accumulates (pollen, leaves, trash, sediment etc.). This is especially helpful in areas that routinely have cars parked on the street. Gutter pan debris contains heavy metals and other fine pollutants so please dispose of debris in the trash, not with yard waste.
