    I remember in saner times you could dump snow in the Hudson River by me.A buddy of mine was pushing it off with a D8,got a little carried away getting too close to the water and did an oopsy.Yeah,another stupid reg from the Bureau of A _ _ _ _ _ _ _ and F_ _ _ ups---no more dumping snow in the river.

    Nice pictures. That is a hell of alot of snow. That place is going to be a river all in its own. I bet those streets will be under water.

    The first 2 pictures are of a new dump space along side the road near st hubert airport .Behind the piles there is housing this was once military housing for the air base . Lots of large deep ditches just at the end of that street that over flow during the normal winter snow .This is one to watch.
    The three other shots are of a municipal snow dump that has been there since 1987 .There is residential
    housing , and a pump station to the left and a small Canadian National train yard behind .There will still be small black mounds of crud in june .

    Cool pics.
    Those first 2 pictures are practically in my back yard. Ok 2 miles away, and its actually not even a snow dump. The dumps were full, so they picked that area for emergency dumping. They dumped load after load on the road and then blew the snow into these huge mountains. The reason there are spaces between them, is because of the light poles. There will be environmental issues come this spring.

    Oh my god! In 04 we made a dump site out of a parking lot that was not being used. It was not even comparable with one of those piles! Im not worthy!

    crazy high piles. I remember a few weeks ago they were on the news talking about the snow over there. They had an avalanch on the snow bank and had to dig out 3 dump trucks.

    So none of the water from those piles in the pictures ever goes into a river?

    I really don't get it with the snow melters, do you just flood the lot from the runoff. What if it's to cold and it just freezes back up before it goes anywhere?:dizzy:
