Street Sweeping

street_sweeperA reflection of the Wastewater Divisions effort in meeting the nine minimum controls strategy of the CSO Policy was the priority established in the street sweeping effort.

A marked and measured decrease in the migration of grit within the collection system and to the treatment plant is identified as a 92% reduction in total grit collection at the P.O.T.W.

The Divisions immediate response to grit collection, prior to introduction into the collection systems, has improved system volicities and capacities minimizing CSO activity during rain events.
