Snow Maintenance & Snow Flags

When there is a heavy snowstorm or other major weather event, the County snow removal crews are removing snow and are sanding all of the County roads before removing the snow off of driveways. If snowfall is light, then the County snow removal crews will remove snow from driveways along their snow plow routes if snow flags are on the rural address sign and are visible. Snow flags are available year round. 

To register for the Snow Flag Program:

2. Sign a Snowplow/Blading Agreement

Download and sign this agreement and email it to us or drop it off at the County office.

3. Pick Up Your Snow Flag

Visit or contact the County office, Public Works or the Town of Elk Point to pick up your snow flag.

4. Make Your Snow Flag Visible

Install your snow flag on your rural address sign.

Drainage

The County performs the maintenance for all water drainage within the county limits and adjacent to the county roadways and lands. Culverts are important because they help stormwater management and where water goes in the County. 

If you suspect any of the following culvert issues, please contact our Public Works department.

Washout

The culvert is too small and cannot handle the flow of the water. As a result, the water will naturally make a new path.

frozen-drainage

Frozen

The intake side of the culvert will have pooled water and the other side will have no flow or minimal water coming out.

Plugged

The intake side of the culvert is blocked with debris, such as grass and trees, and there is minimal to no flow out of the other side.
