Many agencies under pressure to reduce the use of chlorides in winter maintenance are switching to liquids-based solutions including salt brine, other chloride brines, and a blend of these brines with a variety of carbohydrate-based additives. This session will explore best practices for using liquids and provide you the tools to weigh the associated labor, equipment, and materials costs.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this session, you will be better able to:
Quantify the expected reductions in total salt use from implementing a liquids program.
Identify the costs, potential reductions, and benefits of switching to liquid-assisted snow and ice management solutions.
Describe how a fully implemented liquids program will provide improved levels of service and safety.
