County “Snow Spotters” Out and About

A team of 30 Arlington County “snow spotters” is canvassing the 376 miles of county-maintained roadways today, looking for areas in need of additional treatment.

The spotters are specially-trained employees of the Department of Environmental Services. Their observations are relayed back to county employees who map out the findings. The map then allows the snow removal crews to more quickly and easily identify problem spots.

Spotters work autonomously within an assigned area and do not take specific requests from residents.
