Jackson College Snow & Ice Removal
Snow Removal Plan
A snow removal plan has been developed and is updated annually to identify two snow removal crews that will work in overlapping shifts. The intent of the plan is to assure sufficient staff are scheduled to operate the equipment and to assure adequate reserves of man-power to keep campus clean during an all-day snow event.
What type of product is used in the winter for snow and ice removal?
The Facilities Department uses a new de-icing agent, Liquid Snow Shovel, on Central Campus sidewalks in the winter. Liquid Snow Shovel is sprayed on sidewalks prior to each snowfall. Liquid Snow Shovel reduces the time spent removing snow, keeps granular salt off the building floors and carpets, and is eco-friendly.
