Help Reduce the Impact of Salt on the Environment

Salt

If you're reaching for the deicing salt to make your driveway and sidewalks passable, review these tips so you can help reduce the impact of salt on the environment. Choose the right S.A.L.T.!

STUFF: Road salt (sodium chloride) only works above 15 degrees. If temperatures are colder use sand or an ice melting product for those temperatures. Magnesium chloride is a new deicing salt that works in temps to -13. It releases 40% less chloride into the environment.

AMOUNT: Use salt sparingly. One 12 oz. coffee cup full of salt is enough to cover about 10 sidewalk squares. There should be about three inches between salt granules.

LOCATION: Salt only your sidewalk and driveway and never lawn, flower bed or base of tree. And never near a waterway! Hudson is in the Tinker’s Creek, Brandywine Creek and Mud Brook Watersheds, which could be severely affected by salt runoff.

TIME: Salt works best when it is applied before the snow falls or right after snow is removed from a driveway or sidewalk. Never apply when rain is in the forecast.
