The City of Watertown has announced a sow emergency for Friday, Feb. 25 with a storm expected to drop several inches of snow headed toward the area.

Also, City Hall, Library and Senior Center will be closed on Friday due to the storm.

The City sent out the following announcement:

The Superintendent of Public Works is declaring a Snow Emergency effective 1:00 AM, Friday, February 25, 2022.

Watertown is expecting upwards of 8-inches of snow Friday. The Snow Emergency shall remain in effect until further notice. On street parking will be banned and any motor vehicle left on the street will be subject to towing. Please do NOT throw snow into the roadway as this creates a health and safety concern and is an enforceable violation of the City’s Rules and Regulations.

The Superintendent would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation during the snow emergency and would request that every resident assist in clearing of fire hydrants and catch basins in your area. Also, clearing of the sidewalk in front of your property would benefit all.

Please check on your neighbors over the weekend as we anticipate temperatures to remain below freezing.

Additionally, further up-dates will be posted on the City of Watertown’s web site: www.watertown-ma.gov, the City of Watertown and DPW social media, and the DPW Website at: www.watertowndpw.org.

We are all in this together. Thank you,

Gregory St. Louis, PE
Superintendent of Public Works
