Several years of winter snow accumulation, ploughing, melt and salt loading data were carefully collected at three different Southern Ontario locations in order to develop, calibrate and validate a simple salt application optimization tool built on the empirical temperature index (TI) method. Ultimately, it is hoped that this tool can help road maintenance managers improve the strategic application of road salts, particularly in salt vulnerable areas. The webinar will focus on the research and development of the tool and a case study of the tool will be presented.
