    • Abstract:
      While we can’t keep it from blowing, there are ways to influence the wind that carries tons

      of blowing and drifting snow. Periodically, severe winter storms will create large snow

      drifts that close roads and driveways, isolate farmsteads and increase snowplowing. Many

      of these drifting problems happen in the same place year after year.

      Although there are no foolproof methods of wind and snow control, properly designed and

      maintained snow fences can reduce or eliminate these problem areas. This publication

      discusses the benefits of snow fence, then examines the types used by the Iowa Department

      of Transportation. Finally, it provides information about how you can get involved in the

      DOT’s Cooperative Snow Fence Program.
