Power or Mechanized Sweeping involves the use of specialized equipments to remove litter, loose gravels, Soil, Vehicle debris, Animal excreta and pollutants from the road surfaces.
Power Sweeping provides two primary benefits. The more obvious benefits are the collection and removal of litter, leaves and other visible debris that collects in the gutters/ catch basin. In addition to being unsightly, this debris can block the Bell Mouths and other storm water facilities causing localized flooding during rains.
An equally important, but less visible benefit is the removal of Fine Particulate Matter/ Metal particles and other hazardous waste products.
