FREP Noon Network – Salt Smart Collaborative
October 12 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
Presenters: Jill Hammer, The Conservation Foundation
The impacts of winter chlorides on aquatic life lag well into the summer months. The first step to shorten the lag and reduce the impacts is to reduce the excess salt that is wasted every winter. This can be done in many ways, from using only what is needed and only where it is needed to fixing drainage issues before winter and increasing street sweeping in the spring. The Salt Smart Collaborative brings together people and organizations that are working on reducing the impacts of chlorides across the region.
