Waterville Public Works Tackles Nor'easter Storm Cleanup

WATERVILLE, Maine (WABI) - Snow began falling in Waterville around 9 o'clock Wednesday night.

Mark Turner, the city's Public Works director, says his crew was prepared for the storm when the first flakes started falling.

The snow was a bit lighter than they expected.

But with 13 plow trucks on the road, they had no big issues keeping streets clear Thursday morning.

Turner says it's been a busy winter season and they're gearing up for the possibility of more snow next week.

"This is our 26th storm of the year dating back to last November and it's been fairly busy- a lot of nights, and weekends, and holidays. We may be dealing with another storm coming in Monday/Tuesday so just hold tight and we'll deal with that one when it comes," said Turner.

The wind gusts didn't cause many power outages in Kennebec County Thursday morning.

Public Works is reminding folks there is a parking ban in effect in Waterville from midnight until 6AM Friday.

Augusta police have issued a city-wide parking ban effective until noon Friday.
