Street Sweeping - North of Broad

Thursday, August 22, 2019

Residents that live North 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 Thursday, August 22 and Friday, August 23. 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 19:
  • Areas south of Broad St. – Monday August 19 and Tuesday August 20 
  • Areas north of Broad St. – Thursday August 2 and Friday August 23
  • 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.
