Snow disposal facilities perform an integral role in the maintenance programs of many municipalities in canada and other northern countries. The most popular type of snow disposal facility in the Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton, Canada(RMOC) requires a large site on which the snow is simply placed in a stockpile and stored until the snow melts. The storage capacity is limited by the size and shape of site. Since the snow must be hauled to the SDFs by dump trucks, these sites generate high impact type traffic. Author describes in his article the traffic impact for snow disposal facilities.
