Street Sweeping

STREET SWEEPING PROGRAM

Similar to many other local cities, the City of Pomona has a street sweeping program to reduce the amount of pollution reaching its storm drains.  Regular street sweeping is one of the most cost-effective methods used to remove debris, sediment, petroleum products, trash and vegetation which accumulate in gutters and on streets.  An effective program is important for removing debris which could ultimately end up in the storm drains. Keeping the storm drains clear not only helps to mitigate water pollution, but also reduces the likelihood of flooding during heavy rain.

 

The City of Pomona provides street sweeping on public streets in neighborhoods at varying times.  Signs are posted on neighborhood streets for your scheduled street sweeping.  Residents are required to remove their vehicles from the street during this time.Additionally, street sweeping is completed on main thoroughfares throughout the City. Clean streets keep storm drains clear of debris, reduce the potential for flooding, and prevent pollutants from reaching the ocean.

 

Why Does The City Have Street Sweeping? 

There are several reasons for the City conducting the street sweeping. Primarily, there are federal and local mandates, including the Federal Clean Water Act, which require that the City help prevent pollution from entering local waters.

Additionally, street sweeping benefits the community by collecting and removing debris (paper, leaves and other visible objects) that collect in the gutters. This debris can block storm water inlets, causing localized flooding during heavy rains that pollute local water systems. An equally important, but less visible benefit is the removal of metal particles, oil and other hazardous products left behind by passing and parked vehicles. Although virtually invisible, these particles can be extremely harmful to the environment.

Street sweeping removes tons of debris annually from the streets and contaminants that would otherwise remain in the street and eventually end up in the ocean or ground water.

 

Why do I need to move my car during Street Sweeping?

Moving vehicles off a street scheduled for sweeping allows City crews to thoroughly clean the street from curb-to-curb. One parked car equals nearly three car lengths of space that can’t be swept because the street sweeping equipment must leave room to avoid it. This can result in debris building up on the roadway and entering the storm drain which can cause flooding during heavy rains and contribute to water pollution.

 

How will I know when my street will be swept?

The City of Pomona provides street sweeping on public streets in neighborhoods at various times. Additionally, regular street sweeping is completed on main thoroughfares throughout the City with no parking restrictions. The City has posted “No Parking” signs on each street in every neighborhood for scheduled days and hours of street sweeping.

Where can I park during a street sweeping day?

Every vehicle needs to be removed from the street on street sweeping days during the designated sweeping time. Parking in your driveway is most convenient. However, if your driveway is full, make arrangements with a neighbor, or check adjoining neighborhoods not scheduled for the same street sweeping day. It is also important for you to remind any service providers at your home or business (gardener, pool cleaner, etc.) of the street sweeping schedule and that their vehicle cannot be parked on the street.

 

Why are citations issued?

Citations are issued when your vehicle is not moved off the street as noted on the posted 'No Parking on Street Sweeping Days' sign.  If there are no signs posted, contact Public Works Engineering Counter at 909-620-2281 for information on requesting new signs.

What can I do to help reduce water pollution?

The City's street sweeping program is only part of the solution to water pollution and flood prevention. You can do your part by being aware of what you can do to help:

 

  • Do not overwater lawns, trees and vegetation. Overwatering your lawn can wash pesticides, fertilizers, motor oil and yard clippings into the gutter and storm drain where it heads straight to the ocean.
  • Avoid wet cleaning activities which can flush debris into the street and gutters. Utilize dry cleaning methods wherever possible and dispose of debris in an appropriate refuse container.
  • Do not sweep anything into the gutter or street. Blowing leaves and dirt into the gutter makes it difficult for the sweeping crews to clean the streets.
  • Rake leaves and either compost them or place them in the green can for recycling.
  • Remember to move your vehicle on sweeping days.
  • Abandoned vehicles can be reported through the police non-emergency number 909-622-1241.
  • Make sure your vehicles are properly maintained. Clean up vehicle fluid leaks as quickly as possible.

30-Day Impounds:
On January 1, 1995, new laws were enacted relating to unlicensed drivers in California. Section 14602.6 VC authorizes law enforcement to tow and impound a vehicle for 30 days when driven by unlicensed, suspended, or revoked drivers. This means if you or someone who is driving your vehicle does not have a valid license and is stopped by law enforcement officers for any reason, your vehicle will be towed and impounded for thirty (30) days.

If it's your vehicle, it's your responsibility. Under section 14604 VC, the owner of a vehicle has a duty to ensure the person driving their vehicle possesses a valid license. If you allow or permit anyone, including your spouse, child, friend or relative to drive your vehicle and that person does not have a valid license, you will be responsible for towing and storage fees. You will not have access to your vehicle for 30 days.

If the vehicle impounded pursuant to section 14602.6(a) of the California Vehicle Code, the vehicle will be held in impound for a period of 30 days, beginning on the date in which the vehicle was impounded.

Post Storage Hearing:
The purpose of a Post Storage Hearing is solely for determining the validity of the vehicle storage.  The hearing is also to determine if a vehicle that is impounded for 30-days is eligible for early release pursuant to 14602.6 of the California Vehicle Code.  As a vehicle owner, you have the right to a Post Storage Hearing pursuant to 22852 of the California Vehicle Code.

The request for a hearing must be within ten (10) days of the date of mailing of the “Notice of Stored Vehicle”. Failure to request a hearing within ten (10) days of the notice, or failure to attend a scheduled hearing will end your right to a hearing. Information regarding this process is available 24 hours a day by calling 909-620-2081.

Pursuant to Section 22852 V.C., A hearing will be conducted within forty-eight (48) hours (excluding weekends and holidays) after your request has been received by the Pomona Police Traffic Services Unit. The Supervisor that reviews the matter will provide a written reply to you. You may also call 909-620-2081 for the results of your hearing.
