Why is there a ridge of snow in my driveway?

Most of the subdivisions in the District have narrow roadways with garbage stands well onto the municipal property and tree growth to the edge of the road which limits the amount of the snow the grader can deposit between driveways. Our road grader is equipped with a snow gate that limits the amount of snow left in the driveways but cannot eliminate it. The deeper the snowfall the more snow the snow gate will leave in the driveway. Driveways that are not cleaned regularly will develop large ridges from the action of the grader moldboard pushing against driveway snow. Keeping the driveway clear is the resident’s responsibility.

I want all the snow out of my yard and driveway, where can I put the snow?

Snow Dump Sites have been set up in different areas of the District where residents can haul clean snow from driveways and yards. The right-hand side of Murray Point boat launch, Emma Lake Landfill, Overflow parking lot Bells Beach and in the south ditch old section of Highway 953 near McPhail Cove. Pushing or dumping snow onto or into Public Reserves, across road ways or road allowances, private property(unless written permission is given) is prohibited.
