Courtesy of Croton United’s FB page: WHAT DOES THE DPW DO DURING A MAJOR SNOWSTORM?
At a board meeting in February Village Manager
Janine King cited some eye-opening statistics about what Croton’s DPW crews
have to deal with when a major snowstorm blankets the village. Here are the
- For a major storm the DPW starts planning
more than a day in advance.
- Before the snow even begins to fall a brine solution is sprayed on road ways
to prevent the snow from sticking to the asphalt surface.
- Croton’s DPW crews clean 75 lane-miles of state, county and village roads—an
area of 4.3 million square feet.
- The village-owned Metro-North parking lot is an additional 800,000 square
feet and the snow there must be trucked off the site to free up all parking
spaces for the public. READ AND SEE MORE HERE https://www.facebook.com/crotonunited/posts/756019421221758
