Winter Salt Watch is Kicking Off!

Become a Salt Watcher!  Winter is right around the corner, and there’s always the potential for an early snowstorm to catch us off guard. With snowfall, salt application can be expected too. Excessive salt and other de-icers applied to roads, parking lots, and sidewalks during colder months can pose a threat to aquatic life and water quality when runoff flows into streams and rivers. If you want to identify chloride hot spots in your waterway, Salt Watch might be for you.

Join us for the kickoff of or 4th year of  Salt Watch!  Izaak Walton League of America’s volunteer Salt Watchers track chloride spikes from the fall through the spring and advocate for smart road salt practices. If you haven’t ordered your FREE test kit yet, you can find out more and order online. The tests are quick, easy – and meaningful!
