Excessive sand on residential boulevards
Cleaning of sand on residential boulevards is limited to areas where there is an excessive accumulation of sand on the boulevard itself, not the roadway.
Excessive sand is defined as an amount of sand equal to two six-cubic-foot contractor wheelbarrows. If you believe you meet the excessive sand volume criteria, please contact 311. A service request will be generated and the site inspected by crews.
Please review the three examples below to help determine whether your boulevard may meet the excessive sand criteria.
