On February 8th, we discussed the impact of road salt on stream heath, and the effectiveness of stormwater BMPs at filtering out these chlorides. In this follow-up webcast, we’re getting the Minnesota perspective! Recent research from the St. Anthony Falls Lab at the University of Minnesota has investigated how road salts move through a watershed, quantified road salt budgets for large metro areas, and predicted how salts accumulate and flush from large urban lake systems. Plus, we’ll get a glimpse at upcoming research about road salt alternatives!
