Roads and Road Agreements
After heavy snowfalls in Emerald Park, bus routes and South Plains Road, Kingsmere Avenue, Sappphire Drive and Emerald Drive are prioritized.

In rural areas, the RM of Edenwold maintance team first clears bus routes/high traffic main roads, paved roads and country residential subdivisions. Then, the focus shifts to grid roads and farm access roads.
