Did you know that one teaspoon of rock salt is enough to pollute 5 gallons of water? Once salt is introduced into our lakes and wetlands, it’s stuck in that water as it moves along to larger rivers & lakes. This changes the aquatic environment & harms our water resources over time. In addition to posing threats to water quality, salt causes damage to concrete & asphalt, potentially causing it to heave or crack. This winter, join us in keeping our surfaces safe but limiting excess, keeping our lakes & surfaces on a “low-salt diet.”
