Temporary snow dump found

Some of this winter’s record snowfall in Red Deer will be shipped to the North Highway Connector road-right-of way, west of the Red Deer River, south of the wastewater treatment plant, accessible from 78th Street Crescent.

Some of this winter’s record snowfall in Red Deer will be shipped to the North Highway Connector road-right-of way, west of the Red Deer River, south of the wastewater treatment plant, accessible from 78th Street Crescent.

The City of Red Deer received approval from Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Department to open a temporary snow storage site on Wednesday.

The approval for the temporary site has only been granted until the snow melts and until the site cleanup occurs.

The city closed its two existing snow storage sites last week to private contractors because the sites were reaching capacity.

Public Works manager Greg Sikora said this site was ideal because it is on an unconstructed road right-of-way, equipped with storm drainage and storm treatment.

More than 50 sites were considered.

This site is tentatively scheduled to open next week to registered private snow hauling companies.

To register, companies can call Public Works at 403-342-8238.
