Maintenance and Operational Practices

Proper maintenance and cleanliness of an urban area can have a significant impact on the quantity of pollutants washed from an area by storm water. Cleanliness of an urban area starts with control of litter, debris, deicing agents, and agricultural chemicals such as pesticides and fertilizers. Regular street repair and sweeping can further minimize pollutants in stormwater runoff. Proper drainage collection system use and maintenance can maximize control of pollutants by directing them to treatment or disposal.
