Going for the Sweep

We had a resident reach out with some questions about our street sweeping program and we just got swept away rounding up the answers, so we thought we would share them with everyone.

• We have two full-time sweeper operators who on average sweep 5,300 miles of road every year.
• It takes the sweepers roughly 4 to 7 weeks to sweep every public street in Orem
• The sweepers pick up over 200 dump truck loads of debris every year.
• Removing debris from the gutters is critical to maintaining a healthy storm water system.
• The sweepers try to follow the garbage pick-up schedule to help capture any loose debris.
• You can see where the sweepers have been using our fancy GPS sweeper tracker:

Drinking Water Quality Report

Every year we are required by law to publish a water quality report. The results for 2019 are in and Orem water once again met or exceeded all of the laws, rules, and regulations for drinking water.

We have an incredible team of water professionals here at the city that take great pride in delivering excellent water to you every single day.
