Fall has technically just arrived, but planning for winter should already be on the radar of small communities who experience freezing temperatures. While salt application broadly causes minimal environmental impact, runoff from a storage facility can be problematic.
The Ohio EPA has a detailed guidance as well as a factsheet on salt storage with water supply protection in mind. While this guidance is most helpful for communities developing new storage facilities, it is also incredibly useful for checking for potential issues and developing best practices for salt handling.
