Season 7 of Salt Watch is here! Although road salt is (typically) only applied during the winter months, chloride pollution lingers and has year-round impacts within our waterways and environment. You can help uncover these impacts by getting involved in Salt Watch right now! This season, we’ll have stories from superstar volunteers, updates on state salt reduction bills, applicator training workshops, and another round of our popular “paint the plow” event.
