Rockland CCE: “Hold the Salt”

The Cornell Cooperative Extension of Rockland County wants you to take it easy on the salt. Not in your diets, but on the sidewalks and roadways in the wintertime. Mike Wilson hosts the Extension’s “Storm Water Consortium” monthly program here on WRCR, and says excessive salt is bad for pets when it gets in their paws, and it’s not great for the environment either …

Wilson says if it’s just a few flurries there’s little reason to put so much salt down. The salt eventually runs into area streams and waterways and increases the salinity in the water.
