    does DEC ever get involved? Seems like the potential for HUGE run-off in the spring.

    Send it down to Long Island and spread it around. The air will then stay cool and it will snow for them!

    Those pics are in Auburn Maine.

    I have never heard anything from the DEP about these snowpiles . I have plowed these types of lots for 15yrs.

    There wont be a lake all this runs off gradually in stormwater drains over the course of the spring. This is a exceptionally heavy snow year , so i would expect some flooding around the state.

    i too would think taht a differ peice of equip would be better suited for stacking than a lil' hoe with a ditch cleaner

    i am surprised that a loader wouldnt be a little more efficiant or is it loading the trucks?

    haha, thanks JD . I was begining to think , what the heck! Yes , i could bring in a D8 and push the stuff into another town if i wanted to , but i thought just stacking higher would do. Hehe.

    if they have the acreage to store it, there is no reason to melt it.

    Is that all snow just from that particular lot? or are you trucking it in from other jobs and storing it there?
