Kalinosky et al. (2013a) developed a guidance manual and workshop series on street sweeping best practices, as well as a spreadsheet calculator tool “for predicting sediment and nutrient loads to street surfaces in urban areas based on overhead tree canopy; estimating the amount of material that can be removed and the cost of removal in targeted sweeping operations; and designing sweeping programs to meet nutrient reduction goals.”
Inputs into the calculator include:
Based on those simple inputs, the tool estimates nutrient recovery and cost per pound of P removed (Kalinosky et al. 2013b).
