Clean Water Tip
Keep Road Salt and De-Icing Chemicals Out of Water
Shovel snow and ice early and often to limit your use of sand, salt, and de-icing chemicals.
What you can do
When safety requires it, try an alternative to salt. Look at the USEPA’s Design for the Enviornment webpage at www.epa.gov/saferchoice
