What benefits does street sweeping provide?
The Augusta’s Stormwater Permit issued by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division has stringent requirements for the control of trash and for street sweeping. Regular street sweeping is an effective method to remove pollutants before they are washed into waterways by rainfall. Street sweeping removes approximately 584 tons per month of debris and contaminants that would otherwise remain in the street and eventually end up in our storm drain conveyance system potentially causing flooding and in the end polluting our creeks and ocean.
