The City of Tumwater uses GPS technology to track the location and activity of its snow plows and deicing trucks. Roads are prioritized for plowing and anti-icing treatment to ensure access to critical facilities like hospitals and schools. The location of snow plows updates every 30 minutes, on the :15 and :45 of each hour.

How to use the Snow and Ice Response Map:

  • Zoom in with + symbol or zoom out with - symbol to view street names
  • Green lines indicate that a street has been plowed by a city plow truck
  • Purple lines indicate that a street has been treated deicer

During a snow event, the map below will be active.
