SPRING MELT

With the significant amount of rain expected over the next few days, there is the potential for significant snow melt, icy and messy road conditions.

Infrastructure services will be doing its best to control the situation.

Staff will be out prioritizing the areas and doing the best they can to ensure roads urban and rural are passable, please be patient as we do the best we can to deal with the rain system and melting snow.

This system can potentially cause ponding, isolated flooding and impassable roads.

The country areas are buried in snow and water may become trapped on the road as the ditches are all full of snow. 

Staff will be using heavy equipment and steamers to expose and open catch basins in the urban areas and ditches in the rural areas to get the water off the roads.
