NEWS RELEASE
CITY OF GUELPH
*************************
A residential plow out is scheduled to start at about 6 p.m. on Sunday, April 15, and will continue until all roads are plowed. A plow out is typically completed within 24 hours. Visit guelph.ca/snow to use the Plow Tracker map.

Please help keep storm drains clear

Heavy rain expected today and tomorrow increases the risk of flooding. Please help clear snow that may be blocking catch basins in front of your property to help prevent flooding.

Winter road conditions likely to continue tomorrow

To stay safe during and after a storm, we recommend that you:

·         Allow for extra commute times and drive according to road conditions.

·         Please be patient with sidewalk clearing operations. If you’re able, please help clear sidewalks near your property. Seniors and residents with a physical disability who require assistance shoveling can call Snow Angels at 519-822-0912.

·         Keep fire hydrants clear of snow.

·         Do not place waste carts on top of snow banks or on the road as these pose obstacles to the City’s snow clearing operations. Instead, shovel a spot for your carts, or place them in the driveway one foot from the curb.

·         Help keep storm drains and catch basins clear to prevent flooding.

·         To keep roads safe and accessible, do not park across from another vehicle or driveway, and whenever possible, move parked cars off the streets to make room for snow plows.

·         The City’s winter maintenance service helps ensure community safety every day, and in the event of extreme weather. The minimum threshold for a plow out on residential roads is eight centimetres.

·         Continue to check guelph.ca/snowFacebook and Twitter for updates about City services that might be affected by the weather including recreation programming, public transit and garbage pickup.
