91st Green Breakfast: Salt Management Strategies in Northern Virginia
January 13 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
Safe travel conditions during winter is paramount, and road salt is a familiar technique to melt snow and ice from roadways. However, high chloride levels persist throughout the year and negatively impact our stream health. Enjoy a hot buffet breakfast while listening to Will Isenberg of the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality discuss the multi-year effort to develop a Salt Management Strategy (SaMS) for our region, with the goal of more efficiently and effectively applying salts while reducing concentrations of chlorides in local waterbodies. The strategy is stakeholder-driven and seeks public input. $10 at the door, cash preferred. No need to RSVP. Can’t make the breakfast but want to participate in the discussion? Another public meeting on the strategy will be held at Arlington Central Library on Jan. 17th at 6:30pm.
