Professional Weather Services such as NOAA
- National Weather Service - Mt. Holly, N.J. provide the Township with periodic reports that predict the impact of approaching storms on the East Whiteland Township area.
This allows the Township to prepare in advance by notifying staff, readying plowing equipment and loading salt and anti-icers. The Township maintains standby crews all winter long that can be called to work after normal work hours, weekends and holidays.
Timing is critical with a winter storm. As the storm approaches, Township road crews begin applying salt to all Collector Roads. Then, they salt hills, intersections and trouble spots on all dedicated Township roadways.
