There are over 21 lane miles in Lansdowne Borough to be plowed. An average winter storm event of four to six inches of snow requires a minimum of one and one-half days of plowing after the snow has stopped falling in order to clear a path on all streets. During and after a snow event, arterial and collector streets must be plowed continually to provide for emergency access; local street plowing may not begin until after the snow has stopped falling. Please keep this and the following answers to FAQs in mind to help the Borough perform this challenging and important service.

We ask that residents do NOT throw snow in the road when clearing their property. 

Snow is pushed where it is most convenient and maximizes plowing operations. We do not purposely place snow on anyone’s property.
