Kathy LakeInvisible Impact: Salt is cheap and it works. It dissolves in water and appears to go away - but 'away' is actually our freshwater resources. Much of our state's freshwater faces increasing salt levels. The chloride portion of the salt can be toxic in freshwater. This webinar will look at why we care about salt and how we can protect our freshwater resources. It includes tools and resources that are available as well as discussion on innovations that are coming.

Presenter: Kathy Lake, P.E., ENV-SP - Pollution Prevention Manager
