The Street Sweep Team thanks Southeast, West Seattle and Duwamish Industrial Area neighbors for moving their cars every other week for the past year. Their participation allowed us to collect information needed to determine if street sweeping helps make Seattle’s waterways cleaner and healthier for people and fish.
Seattle Street Sweep was a pilot project to evaluate best practices and new technology to improve the health of Seattle’s waters.
Seattle Public Utilities is committed to protecting, and improving water quality in our waterways. We are working to find best practices and new technologies to benefit our environment. This Street Sweep pilot project in the Southeast Seattle (Columbia City, Lakewood\Seward Park & Genessee), West Seattle, and Duwamish Watershed neighborhoods helped the City determine that street sweeping is a good addition to our water quality toolbox, helping make our waterways cleaner and healthier for people and fish.
