  • Snow Removal Rules and Regulations

    The Public Works Department is responsible for salting and plowing all Township owned roadways and facilities. The salting process starts soon after the snow begins and then the roadways are plowed after an accumulation of 2″. Major roadways are plowed until the snow has stopped, then all roadways are plowed back to the curb and re-salted if needed.

    If the storm is Large enough, roadways will be plowed several times. It takes on the average 6-8 hours for the Public Works Department to plow the Township roads after the snow has ended.

    Keep in mind when shoveling your driveway that any shoveling done before the roadway is cleared edge to edge may be plowed back when the plow clears the roadway.

    Please remove all obstacles from the edge of the roadway (i.e. basketball hoops). These items are not permitted according to the Zoning Code, to be in the public right-of-way. If they are there, they can cause major damage to our trucks and other vehicles might hit them as well.  Another problem is trash and recycle containers. If these are placed in the road, they are going to get hit by the plow.

    PLEASE DO NOT PUT TRASH CONTAINERS IN THE STREET AT ANY TIME OF THE YEAR and remember to remove your vehicles after 1 hour of continuing snow fall because the Township Snow Ordinance requires this. When shoveling, snow blowing or plowing your driveway, DO NOT put the snow back into the streets. This is against the law to do and it leaves a road hazard for other motorists to try and drive through, leaving you liable if someone gets hurt.

    The Lower Southampton Township Public Works Department is not responsible for mailboxes damaged during snow plowing operations. Mailboxes should be a minimum of 1 foot from roads edge.
    Keep a safe distance from snow plows.
    Please remove all vehicles from the street when snow accumulation occurs.
    Clean you sidewalk within 12 hours of snow fall.
    If you have a fire hydrant on your property please be courteous and remove fallen snow off the hydrant.


  • Proper Mail Box Location

    Your local Postmaster must approve of the placement of your mailbox. For more information please see here.
