Reducing Use of Deicing Salt for Community Leaders

Why It Makes Sense for Communities to Reduce Salt Use

There are numerous reasons why it makes sense for communities to reduce use of road salt. This video shares the experience of the City of South Burlington, Vermont, which has been able to reduce salt use and save money through salt tracking and equipment calibration.

Lake Champlain Sea Grant staff are available and willing to participate in a conversation in your community based upon this video to help community leaders understand the benefits of and steps to reducing road salt use. Contact Kris Stepenuck at kstepenu [at] if you would like to arrange a meeting.
