Snow still piled 18 metres high in one dump used by City of Winnipeg

WINNIPEG - It’s the dog days of summer, but there's still snow to be found in the city nicknamed Winterpeg.

Jim Berezowsky, manager of street maintenance for Winnipeg, says there is still snow at the four dump sites used by the city.

He says the pile at the Kenaston site is still about 18 metres high.

Usually the snow melts by the time summer is over, but Berezowsky admits sometimes Mother Nature needs a little help.

If it's not melting at the expected rate by the third week of August, the city will send in equipment to break the pile up so that it melts faster.

In late August or early September, crews then move in to clean up the leftover debris and move it and the remaining sediment out to the landfill.

The aim is that by the end of September, the snow dumps are clear and clean and ready for another winter.
