Session Description:

EPA's Stormwater Pollution Prevention Webinar Series will highlight efforts to reduce pollutants in stormwater through controlling pollutants at their sources.

This webinar in EPA's Stormwater Pollution Prevention Webinar Series will cover the topic of road salt. The application and storage of deicing materials, most commonly salts such as sodium chloride, can lead to water quality problems for surrounding areas. The webinar will present information on the impacts of road salt on the environment, implementation of TMDLs involving road salt, successful reduction strategies used by states, and possible groundwater impacts. The webinar will cover actions taken to address road salt by Minnesota and New Hampshire as well as an EPA study on potential groundwater impacts.
