The Mono County Road Department has received delivery of two MT Trackless snow blowers. These pieces of equipment were acquired through the Clean Air Projects Program (CAPP), a joint project of the Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District and Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
The MT Trackless snow blowers will provide improved snow removal services in Mono County’s Road Areas 1 and 3, which include the communities of Paradise, Swall Meadows, Crowley Lake, Hilton Creek, McGee Creek, Lee Vining, June Lake and Mono City. While these pieces of equipment are significantly smaller than the vehicles they are replacing, they are capable of performing similar snow removal. Over the years, snow storage in these areas has been reduced in size requiring equipment capable of placing snow quickly and accurately in the smaller spaces.
This equipment will replace two 1958 snow blowers and improve air quality in the Great Basin Air District as well as provide drastically superior engine efficiency and reliability. Although some minor work remains to ready the vehicles, both are expected to be placed into service by winter. –Press Release
