With More Snow on the Way, Watertown is Trying to Figure Out Where to Put It [Video]

The Public Works Department's snow dump is full and workers must find a way to store more snow.

The pile of snow at Watertown's snow dump already towers above the fencing, and more snow is on its way this weekend.

Public Works Superintendent Gerald Mee said the department will have to get creative at the snow dump, which is located at the old recycling center on Grove Street.

"Our snow dump is full after 27 inches of snow (during the blizzard)," Mee said.

Mee hopes the snow forecast for up to a foot of snow this weekend turns out to be overblown.

"I watch the weather forecast everyday, hoping for the best," Mee said. "Hopefully the storm will blow out to sea."

If the snow does come, Mee said the DPW might have to look at options at the snow dump.

"We are looking at possibly bringing in a front loader and stacking it higher," Mee said.

Where did they put it in 1978? What's wrong with the green space that is no longer green already, on N. Beacon between the river and the Arsenal?

Stack it on the football Fields. They won't be used for a while anyways.
