Briarwood (packed snow)

On December 5th our Public Works Department did three tests for fresh snow vs packed snow in Residential areas and found the following results:



14.1 cm of fresh snow

4.2 cm of packed snow



14.2 cm of fresh snow

3.4 cm of packed snow



13 cm of fresh snow

4.4 cm of packed snow


Please remember that 15cm of packed snow is required for residential snow removal. At 10 cm of packed snow the Operations Manager will conduct a review and has the option of doing the removals earlier.
