Excessive salt use on parking lots, roads, and in our water softeners is threatening lakes, streams, and groundwater. We need everyone working together to keep freshwater fresh. Several area municipalities have reduced winter salt use by 30-50%. Is your community Salt Wise? How can you be Salt Wise at home? Join in this hands-on, family-friendly exploration of salt use and the hidden costs to our natural environment and built infrastructure.
