Join us to kick off this year’s Winter Salt Watch at our November Clean Water Webinar! We will provide background information and updates on the Salt Watch program and then hand it off to our experts. Dr. Gary Johnson will teach us about how road salt impacts our trees, and Phill Sexton will tell us about smarter methods to reduce salt use in the winter months.
Road salt (sodium chloride) is everywhere during winter months. It keeps us safe on roads and sidewalks, but it can also pose a threat to fish and wildlife as well as human health.
Fish and bugs that live in freshwater streams can’t survive in extra salty water. And many of us (more than 118 million Americans) depend on local streams for drinking water. Water treatment plants are not equipped to filter out the extra salt, so it can end up in your tap water and even corrode your pipes.
You can take action.
