The heavy snowfall this winter, combined with warmer temperatures and rain in the forecast, has resulted in an increased concern for potential springtime flooding throughout Minnesota. The City of Golden Valley is taking measures to be prepared, with crews working overtime to clear the City’s 3,000 catch basins of snow and ice to help manage snowmelt runoff and prevent flooding.
Plow crews started clearing streets at 5 am today to prepare for the morning rush hour. Crews will then transition into a full plow at 10 am and will be off the roads by the evening rush hour and plan to resume plowing at 2 am Thursday morning to clear any remaining areas.
When it comes to cleaning and unclogging sewers, Golden Valley maintenance workers have seen it all. Mops, bed sheets, diapers, and needles are just a few things that have clogged up City sewer pumps over the past few years. The City is hoping its new Sewer Chewer will make such clogs a thing of the past.
