Water runoff from streets and parking lots picks up oil and grease dropped from cars. Oil and grease clog fish gills and block oxygen from entering the water. If oxygen levels in the water become too low, aquatic animals may be harmed and/or die.
Contractors should be respectful of citizens in neighborhoods where construction is taking place. Nobody wants to drive through mud on their way home. A proper construction access minimizes track out onto City streets. Contractors should take as much pride in the ‘PROCESS’ of constructing a project as they do in the ‘FINISHED PRODUCT.’

These designed stormwater treatment facilities are ideal for any environment. Pocket wetlands filter, clean and store water from multiple sources. Thy act as sponges by holding flood waters and keeping rivers at normal levels.
Street sweepers are at their optimal potential when they are moving at 3-5 mph. They will ALWAYS have their flashing lights on when they are in operation. Please approach with caution and give them ample space.
The City of Kearney has multiple street sweepers that run regular routes. These street sweepers are NOT designed to pick up only leaves. To get to their regular routes the street sweepers will be avoiding areas where it is obvious that the property owners have purposely moved leaves off their lawn onto the street.
