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
