Learn how to keep health and safety a priority this winter while staying environmentally responsible.

Salt does an amazing job melting ice and improving traction in parking lots. But applying too much salt shortens the life of pavements and hastens the corrosion of infrastructure. Salt applied to pavements also finds its way into streams, where it harms fish and other aquatic life. Fortunately, there are best practices that can prevent excess salting without compromising safety, and some of these may even generate net savings.

Join us to learn about the impacts of parking lot salt on property and the environment, and how to mitigate risk through winter maintenance best practices and sustainable procurement of winter maintenance services.
