This was a study conducted to determine the effectiveness of streetsweeping as a control measure for pollutants from urban areas that would otherwise end up as nonpoint pollution in the runoff from storm events. Included was street dirt sampling to measure total loads of material on the street, and particle size distributions and constituent concentrations in the street loads. Different streetsweeping frequencies were also evaluated.
