Streets and parking lots comprise a significant portion of the total impervious area (non-absorbing) within urban areas, like Gilbert. A large percentage, if not the entire area, of streets and parking lots are usually directly connected to the storm drain system. Street sweeping not only improves the appearance of the neighborhood, it also removes a large amount of debris and sediment that could have been washed into the storm drainage system.
The Town uses environmentally efficient street sweepers. These sweepers reduce the amount of dust that can be "thrown up" into the air by normal street sweepers. The dirt and debris collected from the roadways eventually end up in the landfill.
