Smart Salting, Cleaner Water

Smart Salting

Most salt products are not the best way to deal with icy areas around your home. Salt can corrode your vehicle, cause concrete damage, and run off into lakes, ponds, and creeks.

Here are ways for you to have safe walking areas while reducing salt/chloride pollution.

  • Remove snow during a snowstorm instead of waiting until the end
  • Think anti-icing. The goal is to break the bond between ice and pavement just where you need it so it can be shoveled or plowed, as opposed to melting everything.
  • Treat before a storm to help prevent ice buildup so less ice-melting product is needed.
  • Use sand for traction. Sand is the safest for pets and children. The pet-safe products usually have sure in them which adds nutrient pollution and can cause spring algae blooms.
