Please join the Minnesota Association of Environmental Professionals (MNAEP) for their January Event “The Story of Salt Pollution: From Source to Solutions”. Drinks and snacks will be provided before and after the presentation.
With winter comes a routine in Minnesota: gloves, window scraping, dreams of a remote car starter, added time for your commute, making sure the emergency kit is stocked, etc. What you may not have stopped to think of, or perhaps have and always wondered, is the effect that all the salt on the roads has on our environment. Erica Sniegowski, Program and Project Manager at Nine Mile Creek Watershed District, will be presenting on the link between road salt and chloride pollution: “Road salt is polluting our lakes and creeks in the Twin Cities, including Nine Mile Creek, which is impaired for chloride. This presentation will explore the chloride pollution, including the sources, impacts, and work being done to reduce this pollutant. The Nine Mile Creek impairment will be discussed specifically as an example to highlight the issue of chloride pollution.”
