Parking Operations and Maintenance - Snow Removal and Deicing

Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) is committed to providing a safe and accessible campus at all times and in all weather. This Snow Removal and Deicing Operations guide provides information about our approaches and may serve as a resource to others. It explains our practices for snow removal and deicing of the parking structures and lots

Consistent with our goal to continually improve work processes, Parking Maintenance management routinely reviews work plan outcomes and makes revisions when necessary to improve the quality and effectiveness of snow and ice management.
