Iowa Implements Backhoe Loaders To Clear Ice 26/02/2008

City workers in Iowa are under pressure to clear ice on the streets. The streets have become icy after storm drains froze over. A leader of the city of Waterloo in Iowa has already implemented four crews of people working on backhoe loaders to clear the ice, with an important consideration being that the backhoe loaders clear the ice before the storm drains re-freeze.brbr

It has been suggested that as the ice is so thick, backhoe loaders are the only tool sufficient to get through the solid ice. This is effective in theory, but in actuality as snow or rain appears to be falling in the city regularly, this is not necessarily an equally sided battle.brbr

The city of Waterloo has employed two crews operating a backhoe loader each in the east of the city, as well as two additional groups of backhoe loaders in the west side of town.brbr

One of the waste management leaders of the city of Iowa has claimed that they are currently utilising all of the backhoe loaders which they have at their disposal. This is not a situation experienced exclusively by the city of Waterloo in Iowa, as other locations nearby are also experiencing similar conditions, and are implementing backhoe loaders as required.
