Noblesville begins street sweeping throughout city
The Times


The Noblesville Street Department began street sweeping of the entire city today. Using two sweepers, the street department will start in Old Town before moving away from the downtown area into the subdivisions.

The entire process can take two months to reach every street and neighborhood. Street Commissioner Patty Johnson said the spring sweep will take place in April and May and another sweep will occur in July and August.

"In addition to having clean roadways, street sweeping improves air standards and storm water quality for the citizens of Noblesville because it picks up nutrients and sediments from street surfaces before they can be washed off in storm water runoff," said Johnson. "These operations are vital to our total city structure."

By removing leaves and other debris that collect in the gutters, sweeping prevents localized flooding during heavy rains. Sweeping also removes metal particles and other hazardous waste products left by passing vehicles. If left on the roadway, these waste products can be harmful to fish and other wildlife once they reach our creeks and rivers.

"Residents are asked to assist in the cleaning effort by removing any loose limbs found on roadways and by keeping bagged leaves on their property. Because of the damage they cause the equipment, sweepers go around limbs on streets and do not return once passed," Johnson said. "Also, if you have the option to park your vehicle off the street that would assist us."

When severe weather conditions exist, street sweeping may be postponed if it is deemed not beneficial to the public. This cycle also will not interfere with Downtown Noblesville being swept at least once a week.
