StormWater Sweeping Specialists:
Sediment, fine particles, trash and debris transported from parking lot surfaces represents one of the most substantial sources of non-point source pollution today. In addition to negative aesthetics for customers and owners, sediment, trash and debris can retain and transport other pollutants to receiving waters including bacteria, nutrients and metals.
StormWater Compliance, LLC personnel pride ourselves on being Stormwater professionals that provide a high quality sweeping service as a component of a comprehensive Stormwater Good Housekeeping Program. We will assist in developing a site specific plan based on local Stormwater O&M requirements and client needs. We document in a log all sweeping efforts and report as required.

State of the Art Equipment:
Arguably the most essential factor in using sweeping as a pollutant removal practice is to be sure to use the most sophisticated sweepers available. StormWater Compliance, LLC utilizes only Regenerative Air type vacuum sweepers. By using the latest in sweeper technology, greater reductions in sediment and the accompanying pollutants can be realized.

Pourous Pavement Maintenance:
As Stormwater professionals we understand that pervious pavement surfaces are increasingly being integrated into stormwater management systems (SMS). In cold weather climates these porous surfaces are particularly sensitive to sediment. As an integral part of the stormwater management system, the longevity and effectiveness of this significant capital investment is directly related to its care and maintenance. We manage porous pavement as we do the entire stormwater system. We document condition and performance and restore surfaces as needed.

Sweeping Inspection and Maintenance Frequency:
As site specific needs vary greatly, so do our sweeping recommendations. Inspection should be performed several times in the first few months and then monthly or quarterly depending upon the intensity of use. Inspections are performed to:

1.   Confirm “good housekeeping” practices are in place.
2.   Inspect for spalling and surface deterioration.
3.   Surface should be checked for signs of ponding.
4.   Voids should be checked for accumulation of fine material.
5.   Check for accidental or illicit spillage.
6.   A log should be kept detailing annual inspection and      maintenance activities.

The recommended sweeping frequency of pavement is 2 to 4 times per year with a regenerative air vacuum sweeper. The actual number of visits is site specific and is determined based upon: type of pavement, land use, local climate, winter de-icing practices, loading, etc.
