Snow Removal by Aircraft Operators

As always, the objective of our Snow Removal Plan is to have the Airport runways open and functional as soon as possible after a new snowfall. To keep taxi lanes open, please store snow in the designated areas of your "tail-in" or "drive-thru" tiedown space as shown below.  Snow stored in front of or behind your aircraft or adjacent to the taxi lanes (away from the fuselage) will be removed by MRI  during snow removal operations (in a rotating priority order) .  Snow that is placed adjacent to the fuselage will remain there until breakup.

Municipal Code prohibits the dumping or relocating of snow onto or across taxilanes, taxiways, runways, or airport roads by any persons except Municipal employees.
