Notices, Workshops & Rides: Nobody seems to care
About excessive road salting. Christmas morning arrives with a new, and heavy coat of salt on our roads. The temperature is above freezing and forecast to be even higher in the next few days. Tomorrows rain will wash most of that salt into the watersheds, the streams, the lakes and our wells. We present ourselves as environmentalists, not re-cycling is nearly a crime, and yet we say nothing about the many TONS of salt that are dumped unnecessarily into our environment every winter.
That linked article refers to places in the U.S. though the problem is no different here.
