Traverse City's Snow Removal Dump Sites Filling Up

Posted: Updated:

Traverse City has more snow this year already than their yearly average.

With this abundance of snow, they have to take it out of the city and dump it somewhere else.

Traverse City has received more than 100 inches of snow this year, which is more than their yearly amount. Their streets department working to remove as much as they can.

During this weekend's snow storm they collected about 9,000 yards of snow, which filled up their first and almost their second dump site. As a precaution they opened up a third location just in case of another major snow storm. They say its extremely important for them to keep up with the snowfall.

9&10's Katie Boomgaard took a closer look at where all the extra snow is going.
