KEEP ROAD SALT AND DEICING CHEMICALS OUT OF OUR WATER.  Shovel snow and ice early and often to limit your use of sand, salt, and de-icing chemicals.  When safety requires it, try an alternative to salt, such as those listed at the USEPA's Design for the Environment webpage at  


"It all boils down to this:  that all life is interrelated.  We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny.  Whatever affects one destiny, affects all indirectly." ~Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
