Where to put all the snow in New Jersey

All you have to do in New Jersey is throw a snow ball, and you'll hit a huge snow pile.

After seven storms, there is just no place to put it anymore.

Steve Loiacono is the city manager of Hackensack, and says the city is doing its best, but at some point dumping in the river is a real possibility.

The D.E.P. says size of the body of water, flow of that waterway, and impact to downstream dams will all be factors taken into consideration before making a decision. ---
