Snow Removal & Ice Management

Posted on: January 14, 2022

[ARCHIVED] Plowing & Sanding Schedule

Watertown Street Department



The City of Watertown has received more than 2” of snow. Therefore, the Street Department is currently (Friday, January 14th, 2022) plowing & sanding Highways, Emergency Snow Routes, Willow Creek Drive, South Bypass, & Lake Kampeska. We will be re-running these routes throughout the day due to continuous snowfall.


Starting at 3 AM, Saturday, January 15th, 2022, the Street Department will be removing snow from the Downtown Business District and will continue into Avenues.


Downtown Business Owners: Please assist the Street Department by cleaning off your curbside sidewalks before 3 AM, January 15th, 2022. 


Due to the observed holiday on Monday, January 17th, 2022, the Street Department will be removing snow from Streets beginning at 6 AM, Sunday, January 16th, 2022.


If additional accumulation/blowing occurs and the Street Superintendent deems it necessary, the Street Department may alter this plan to re-plow & re-sand high priority roadways such as Highways & Emergency Snow Routes.


The Police Department has asked that we remind residents of the ticketing process for snow removal. As requested, the information is listed below:


Streets are plowed on: Monday, Wednesday, & Friday

Avenues are plowed on: Tuesday, Thursday, & Saturday


Please assist the Street Department by not parking on the roadways during the time that roadway is scheduled to be plowed. Parking on streets, avenues, or snow routes during the days they are scheduled to be plowed will result in a $40 fine (fine doubles to $80 if not paid in 3 days). There is also a fine for blowing snow into the street from a driveway or sidewalk. 


Officers will do same day ticketing of vehicles blocking the snowplows from clearing the City’s streets and avenues. If the obstructing vehicles remain on the street longer than 24 hours after being plowed around, it will be towed at the expense of the owner. The Street & Police Departments appreciate the cooperation and understanding of residents in removing cars to provide for effective snow removal on City streets.
