Miles of city, county and state roads that are swept to reduce stormwater pollution during each EIP reporting year as part of regular operations and maintenance procedures. Capital stormwater infrastructure improvement activities are captured by other PMs. Sweeping streets reduces a major source of pollutants in stormwater runoff that flows to Lake Tahoe and works toward reducing clarity loss.

Miles of Street Sweeping is reported as a Performance Measure in the EIP Project Tracker. Indicators used for EIP reporting are summarized in an annual report and highlighted each year during the Lake Tahoe Summit.
Fine sediment particles – Sediment particles with diameter of less than 16 micrometers.
Urban jurisdictions – These include counties, state highway departments and cities within the Tahoe Basin.
Types of Street Sweepers
The miles of streets swept are reported annually by each jurisdiction, based on information from their internal operations tracking. Urban jurisdictions develop Annual Stormwater Reports and submit all materials by December 31st of each year for the reporting year ending September 30 (Lahontan & NDEP, 2011).
Tahoe Basin roads are swept using one of the types of street sweepers outline under Critical Definitions, which vary in their effectiveness and operational costs. The Equipment Type Subcategory provides additional understanding about street sweeping procedures, and should align with inputs into the PRLM used by the TMDL.
EIP Context data not provided.
Miles of Street Sweeping is reported in Lake Clarity Tracker. Indicators in the Lake Clarity Tracker are used to demonstrate compliance with TMDL requirements.
