The report gives results of an experimental program to develop design modifications that can be used to improve the ability of municipal street sweepers to remove inhalable dust particles from streets. (Dust emissions from paved roads are a major source of urban inhalable particulate matter). A commercial regenerative air sweeper was modified. Major modifications included a charged spray scrubber for fine particle collection, and a gutter broom hood to help contain redispersed dust particles. The upgraded sweeper proved effective in eliminating dust plumes during sweeping and giving cleaner streets.
