Friday snow removal in Waterloo marks the end

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL)-- Downtown Waterloo is somewhat of a maze of snow piles on city streets, but relief is in sight. Crews have been out and about clearing most of the snow off the streets.

Around 11:00 Thursday night, crews began working to clear the streets.  Even working for ten and eleven hours straight.

At least 40 trucks worked to clear the nearly 450 miles of streets in Waterloo. Dump trucks took at least one thousand loads of snow to a couple different locations in the city.

Steve Decker, Waterloo Streets Department Superintendent, says the removal of the snow Friday is like the ending for this storm that hit most of Eastern Iowa this week. Crews started working to clear the snow around 7:00 Monday evening.

All the snow is taken away to city owned lots at 8th and Sycamore and Riverview Recreation Area.

People are not allowed to dump their own snow in those lots.
