(1) No vehicle shall be driven or moved on any street, highway, or other public place unless such vehicle is so constructed, loaded, or covered as to prevent any of its load from dropping, sifting, leaking, or otherwise escaping there from, except that sand or other substances may be dropped for the purpose of securing traction, or water or other substances may be sprinkled on a roadway in cleaning or maintaining such roadway for the travel of the general public.
(2) No vehicle loaded with garbage, waste paper, ashes, refuse, trash, rubbish, waste, wire, paper, cartons, boxes, glass, solid waste, scrap metal, or any other material of an unsanitary nature that is susceptible to blowing or bouncing from a moving vehicle shall be driven or moved on any street or other public place unless the load is covered with a sufficient cover to prevent the load or any part of the load from spilling onto the street or other public place.
(3) No person shall operate any vehicle so as to track or drop mud, stones, dirt, concrete, gravel, or other similar material onto public streets. It shall be the duty of the driver of a vehicle who unlawfully drops or deposits mud, stones, concrete, gravel, or other similar material or permits the load or any portion thereof to be dropped or deposited upon any street or other public place to immediately remove the same or cause it to be removed. It shall be the duty of the driver of any vehicle to clean the tires and vehicle undercarriage of dirt or debris before the vehicle enters onto a paved surface public right-of-way.
(4) No person shall discharge waste concrete or concrete truck rinse water except into pre-approved discharge facilities or designated areas. Dumping of excess concrete shall not be allowed.
(5) No person shall stockpile construction or yard improvement materials or debris in the street or in the gutter unless being stored in a self-contained storage unit that has been pre-approved by the Public Works Department. This includes, but is not limited to, ramps being constructed for temporary access across the existing curb and gutter; stockpiling of topsoil or other fill material; stockpiling of sand, gravel, landscape rock, bark, mulch, or any other material that may be considered a source of pollution to the storm water system. An exception to this prohibition must be expressly granted to the applicant in the approved SWPPP. All other persons or entities, where a SWPPP is not required, desiring to create a temporary ramp for construction, landscape, or other purposes, may use a gravel ramp of one inch (1") gravel or larger, in combination with a mechanism approved by the City Engineer for seeing that the gravel does not enter into the City's storm drain system. The ramp shall be removed immediately after the development activity ceases or upon notice from the City to do so, whichever occurs first.
