Be Responsible When Applying Winter Salt
- Melting ice and snow carries salt to storm drains leading to our rivers and lakes. Once it enters a body of water it doesn’t go away. High salinity is toxic to aquatic life, birds, and other organisms.
- If you must salt, scatter it. One coffee mug of salt is enough to treat an entire 20 ft driveway or 10 sidewalk squares.
- Remember, it only takes 1 teaspoon of salt to permanently pollute 5 gallons of water.
