Winnipeg Snow Disposal Sites Have Become Snow Mountains

Winnipeg has experienced its third highest recorded snowfall ever. Over five and a half feet has fallen in the city and all across southern Manitoba. The three snow disposal sites Winnipeg uses have become little mountains.

Bulldozers and dump trucks pile up an ever increasing mountain of snow on McPhillips near the perimeter. See story.. February 26, 2022 – (Phil Hossack / Winnipeg Free Press)
PHIL HOSSACK / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS – A single cat pushes snow up the Kenaston St Snow Dump Tuesday morning after the city’s latest blizzard cleared. Often dubbed “Mount Manitoba” the site is filling up fast with this year’s snow accumulation. At one point over 100 pieces of equipment were clearing streets for the morning rush hour.

There is still mounds of snow along city streets and in parks etc. Forecasters are predicting good chance of flooding once all this white stuff melts.
