WEST MANCHESTER TOWNSHIP SNOW TIPS:
West Manchester Township is offering the following tips to follow once the snow begins to fall:
- Ensure proper ventilation of furnaces, water heaters and other appliances that vent outside. Clear snow from exhaust pipes.
- Clear snow from gas meters. Heavy snow can cover the regulator vent and block gas service.
- Check on vulnerable neighbors, friends and relatives during and after the storm. Make sure they have an adequate supply of food, water and medicine.
- Do not call 911 to report power outages unless the outage poses a threat to safety or property (contact numbers for electricity providers are listed below).
- Never use a generator indoors or in an attached garage. A portable generator exhausts a deadly gas called carbon monoxide that is odorless and colorless. Place generators outside where exhaust fumes will not enter into enclosed spaces. The generator should be protected from direct exposure to rain and snow. Follow manufacturer instructions.
- Clear fire hydrants near your home or business from snow so the hydrants are readily accessible to fire departments. Fire hydrants should be cleared of snow from about 3 feet in each direction, with a clear path to the street.
- Clear snow off all exposed surfaces of vehicles before driving, including the top of the vehicle.
- Take care not to overexert when shoveling snow. Push the snow as you shovel because it’s easier on your back than lifting the snow. Make sure to stretch before and after snow removal. Take breaks as necessary.

ROADBOTICS IN WEST MANCHESTER TOWNSHIP
RoadBotics, one of the country’s leading road monitoring technology companies is coming to West Manchester to conduct a scan of the entire local roadway network. The Pittsburgh-based RoadBotics will deploy one of their certified drivers to traverse Township roadways using a standard passenger car. While driving, RoadBotics will collect visual data about every pavement surface using a windshield-mounted smartphone.
Residents may see a car driving slowly down every roadway with a RoadBotics sticker on it, it’s a certified driver collecting road condition information. After driving every local roadway, the driver sends the collected video data back to RoadBotics HQ where it is analyzed using cutting-edge machine learning technology – a process where a computer views all of the video data and identifies road surface damage (e.g., potholes) with unprecedented precision, speed, and accuracy. The analysis results in an interactive map that will help West Manchester Township Staff develop effective plans to repair and maintain local roads.
West Manchester is committed to using the latest in civic technologies, like RoadBotics to benefit Residents, save resources and make informed decisions about Public assets.
