Road Salts in the DC Region: A Discussion of Emerging Impacts and Best Practices
Road salts have been increasingly used since the 1940s, for the primary purpose of keeping us on the road and preventing accidents and falls. However, it’s also known that road salts are negatively affecting ecosystems and critical infrastructure. Communities are beginning to implement improved practices that reduce the amount of salt used while maintaining the public safety benefits. This event will highlight scientific perspectives on the impacts of road salts, and emerging best management practices and strategies that could affect the way road salts or alternative materials are applied in the Washington, D.C., Metropolitan Region.
