During a heavy snowfall or blizzard, the City of Estevan’s first objective is to ensure emergency vehicles can reach a home or business if required.
When the snowstorm subsides, snowplow crews shift their focus to plow streets to re-establish traffic flow. Streets are grouped into priority categories and are plowed in order of priority and according to specific priority guidelines.
