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.
