[ARCHIVED] Keeping St. Cloud's Streets and Water Clean!

St. Cloud is keeping city streets and local waterways clean with our newest street sweeper!

The Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources recently published a video highlighting St. Cloud's vacuum style street sweeper. Purchased in part with funds from a Clean Water Fund Grant awarded to Benton Soil & Water Conservation District , the new street sweeper can collect fine sediment, debris, and dust from roads. Collecting this material and disposing of it through recycling, composting, or a landfill keeps it from polluting the Mississippi River, which provides the City of St. Cloud's drinking water. 

You can see a video of the vacuum street sweeper in action and hear more about how it helps protect our local waterways on the city website.

For a closer look at this project and many others,  please visit the Public Utilities Department  Projects and Initiatives page.
