Webinar: The Ecosystem Impacts of Road Salt

Event Dates

  • Wednesday, 10/19/2022 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Event Description

Once salt goes down, it doesn’t go away. Salt levels are rising up in lakes, streams, and drinking water across the country. Harm to native freshwater organisms can occur at both the species and ecosystem levels lowering rates of growth and reproduction through osmotic stress, reductions in food source, and altered biogeochemistry. We’ll break down the science of freshwater salinization and build up the case for smarter salting in your communities.
