Protection Activity: Best Management Practices

A street sweeper cleans pollutants and sediments from the street to reduce the amount of pollutants entering receiving waters from runoff. Streets, roads, highways, and parking lots accumulate significant amounts of pollutants that contribute to stormwater pollutant runoff to surface waters. Pollutants including sediment, debris, trash, road salt, and trace metals can be minimized by street sweeping.
