Department of Sanitation Borough-Based Snow Plans 2017-2018

Pursuant to Local Law 28 of 2011, the Department of Sanitation’s final Borough-Based Snow Plans have been posted on their website. The Final Snow Plans detail DSNY’s preparedness and response for possible snow events in the coming 2017-2018 winter season. The snow plans can be found at: http://www1.nyc.gov/assets/dsny/snow/stormresponse.shtml


Attachment: Snow: Your Responsibilities

Some General Snow Information to keep in mind:

All winter weather information and information about the City’s response to the storm can be found by visiting the City’s Severe Weather Website at www.nyc.gov/severeweather or by calling 311. Also updates can found on our website at: www.nyc.gov/sanitation, where information will be updated regularly. These websites will offer you a simple and quick way to keep apprised of current conditions. You can also sign up to follow the Department on twitter.

The Department has both a plan and equipment in place for each of the City’s 59 Sanitation Districts, as described the Borough Snow Plans. Until all streets are clear and initial operations are completed, it is neither practical nor feasible to divert resources from the critical jobs to which they are assigned in order to address individual requests. Once all roads are cleared, we can review issues regarding specific locations.

The Department has worked very closely with the City’s 311 Customer Service Center to provide a forum for public information and for registering service requests and complaints. The data and information received by 311 is regularly reviewed by DSNY officials.

In order to ensure an effective response the Department designates streets as follows:

Critical Routes, such as expressways, bus routes, main thoroughfares and other roadways that contain emergency services or first responder facilities.

Sector Routes, which encompass non-Critical streets that can accommodate a full size DSNY collection truck with a plow affixed.

Haulster Routes, which service streets that have turning radius constraints, those that may be very narrow and dead ends.

It is important to keep in mind that it does take some time after the snow has stopped falling for streets to be cleared of snow to create a passable driving lane. Although a street has been plowed, it may not necessarily be black top (to avoid damaging roadways, plows do not “scape” the roadway) -- it all depends on how many inches of snow have fallen, temperatures and traffic volume.
