The weekly frequency is in compliance with the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) best practices criteria. Runoff from sprinklers and other outdoor activites result in debris that migrates into the storm drain system. This can pollute the entire downstream watershed, even to the beaches. The City’s street sweeping equipment uses a technology known as a regenerative air system, which is designed to meet stringent South Coast Air Quality Management District dust control measures.
Vehicles must be removed from on-street parking locations as the sweeper makes its weekly pass. Articles below provide further detail on street sweeping days and restrictions.
Those with an unusual, temporary situation preventing compliance with street sweeping restrictions on a short-term basis are advised to notify the police watch commander at 714 990-7624 in advance.
