Street Sweeping Part 4 , CRWQCB Responds
April 10, 2003

Following my third E-FORUM on street sweeping (http://www.tombutt.com/forum/030331b.htm) the California Regional Water Quality Control Board, Region 2, staff person in charge of this type of NPDES permits, responded as follows:

“You have done a good job in summarizing my statements, as well as the aspects of your municipal stormwater permit requirements that relate to street sweeping.  For further technical information of the efficacy of street sweeping, please refer to the following website: http://www.stormwatercenter.net/Pollution_Prevention_Factsheets/ParkingLotandStreetCleaning.htm

Ms. Boschen also offered to come to speak to the City Council and answer any questions citizens may have. She can be contacted at:
