I have heard that those waterless sweepers are a joke. The ability to control airborn dust without ground water can be done, somewhat, with various vacuum sweepers, because they can arrest the dust when it comes into the hopper (if you know what you're doing). But to control dust with a BROOM sweeper (picture: actual contact with the ground) with no ground water, is a big problem. So they made these crazy shrouds, with complicated filters, to go around the entire portion that touches/contacts the ground. Now each time you go to dump, you have to shake out those filters, and you end up making a bunch of dust at the place you are dumping the sweeper! Doh! So much for fugitive airborn dust.
