Be Salt Wise When You Shovel or Plow
This winter remember our lakes and streams and use less salt when shoveling your driveway and sidewalk.
Just 1 teaspoon of salt can make 5 gallons of water toxic to our aquatic life in the lakes and Starkweather Creek. Aquatic life help our lakes to stay healthy and fight invasive species.
Here’s a few hints:
- shovel your sidewalk before it gets icy.
- a mug of salt will cover about 10 sidewalk squares
- use sand when the pavement temperature is below 15 degrees
