Prof. Robert Brinkmann Receives Grant to Study Street Sweeping

Dr. Robert Brinkmann, director of Sustainability Studies, and the National Center for Suburban Studies® received a $5,000 special legislative grant from the New York State Education Department of New York to study how street sweeping is managed across Long Island.

Streets across the United States are swept on average once a month. However, how they are swept and how street sweeping is managed varies considerably. These variations have major impacts on storm water quality and waste management. Dr. Brinkmann is one of the authors of the only academic book ever written on street sweeping, Urban Sediment Removal, and is one of the few street sweeping experts in the world.
