Hawkesbury’s Snow Depot
The Town of Hawkesbury invested federal Gas Tax funds in the creation of a new snow depot.
The facility on the Town’s Tupper Street allows the municipality to safely and responsibly store and dispose of snow collected from the road and sidewalk network.
Snow is disposed of by way of a controlled melt process. The facility was created to also handle the management and treatment of storm water.
Completion of the site followed a trial period which took into account historic snowfall levels and the impact on the environment.
