Is it snowing where you are?


It’s definitely snowy in my neck of the woods, which makes me wonder, “what are the environmental impacts of all the salt that’s spread on the roads?”  It turns out, the salt can affect drinking water, but it has an even more significant impact on freshwater ecosystems.  Here’s a great article from Smithsonian.com which explains the impacts and some of the attempts at reducing harm while keeping us safe on the road.
