Chloride accumulating in lakes, streams, aquifers

More than 150 people gathered Feb. 3 to  share research about road salt and winter road maintenance.  The topic was the impact of salt on Minnesota’s waters.

The occasion was the Freshwater Society’s  Road Salt Symposium.

University of Minnesota researcher Eric Novotny presented evidence that a large percentage of the salt used on metro roads is retained in surface and ground water. To  view presentations by Novotny and other researchers, click here.
