The main principle of the strategy of the integrated improvement the functioning of a city of the northern region and its infrastructure in winter is a systematic solution to the problem of industrial disposal of snow mass in various parts of the city road network, removal and utilization of snow. The implementation of the strategy in the capital of Russia - the city of Moscow is based on the use of the General snow disposal scheme. In connection with the meteorological conditions that have changed in recent years in Moscow, i.e. increase in the height of the snow cover and extension of the roadway paving subject to cleaning, the use of advanced technologies of snow collection and disposal, new types of deicing agents, the aim of the research was updating the General snow disposal scheme in Moscow. As a method of its implementation, we used a statistical analysis of the formation in recent years of the volume and average annual depth of the snow cover in the city of Moscow, an estimation of the heat capacity of sewers and a heating network for the utilization of snow mass. The article presents the results of the implementation of the updated General snow disposal scheme, gives suggestions for snow removal in extreme snowfalls.
