Smart Salting Workshops
Excessive road salts damage our infrastructure, soils and permanently
pollutes our freshwater - the source of our drinking water. The good news
is proper application, calibration and new application techniques can
reduce these threats. Milwaukee Riverkeeper is inviting winter maintenance
professionals to participate in a salting workshop led
by Minnesota's Bolton & Menk, Inc.
Participants in these workshops will learn state of the art winter
maintenance practices, including how to transition to liquid deicers and
reduce overall salt application to roadways or parking lots and sidewalks.
Participants will hear success stories about how other organizations have
implemented these practices and *have saved time AND money*!
Workshops will be held in person at UWM's School of Freshwater Sciences
(600 E Greenfield Ave). Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
