Water Softener Brine Reclamation Innovation Project

Event Dates

  • 02/02/2022 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Event Description

After taking a Smart Salting class, USDA Forest Products Lab Facilities Operations staff in Madison, WI, put their heads together and designed a system to capture their waster softener discharge. Rather than pump this waste brine down the drain, they are using it for pre-treatment  on their parking lots. They are slashing their winter maintenance costs, reducing overall salt use, and loving the results. Bob Ramos, Katharine Drake, and Keven Kramer will cover all aspects of this innovative project.
