A Stormwater Runoff Best Management Practice (BMP)

Parking Lot Sweepers

Stormwater Drain

Most newly constructed parking lots and areas are required to implement a number of Best Management Practices (BMPs) for stormwater management. There are several different BMPs that can be implemented such as adding additional landscaping, installing storm drain catch basins and sweeping paved surfaces on a frequent basis. Sweeping parking lots on a regular basis obviously keeps the larger debris from going down storm drains, but sweeping with a TYMCO Regenerative Air Sweeper will also remove all of the fine dust particulates out of the cracks and crevices.

More often than not, fine dust particulates can be more damaging to stormwater runoff than larger debris. This dust can contain several different contaminants and toxins like vehicle lubricants, coolants and brake dust, petroleum products used in pavements as well as other contaminants that fall on the parking area surface. Whenever there is a rain event, anything left on the paved surface will be picked up by the stormwater runoff and flow untreated into local waterways.
