The observed snow storage
was found to be 18.6 t/m at Mountain Lake. The storage
capacity of this fence design is 41.2 t/m; therefore
this design captured roughtly 45% of capacity
for the 2000-01 season.
The calculated setback distance
of 165 ft is 135 ft greater than the actual setback
of 300 ft. However, no problems occurred at this site
because snow deposition did not encroach on the roadway.
