WISCONSIN SALT AWARENESS WEEK IS BACK

Monday, January 23, 2023


WI Salt Wise Partnership Educates Public on the Growing Costs of Road Salt Pollution


Do you want to join!? Register online here: www.wisaltwise.com.

The Wisconsin Salt Wise Partnership gears up to spotlight the threats that road salt poses to our rivers, lakes and drinking water. All the salt that we apply to pavement ends up in our water, making our freshwater less and less fresh each year. Just a teaspoon of salt permanently pollutes five gallons of water! 

Featuring five speakers over five days, daily livestreams will address the environmental toll of deicers, salts in our drinking water, actions the Wisconsin DNR is planning, and how residents can get involved. Speakers include Sujay Kaushal (University of Maryland), Charlie Paradis (University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee), Allison Couture (UW Health), Shannon Haydin (Wisconsin DNR), and Allison Madison (WI Salt Wise).
