The North East Wisconsin Stormwater Consortium (NEWSC) will host a Winter Parking Lot & Sidewalk Maintenance Workshop from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, October 24. The workshop will be held in the Town of Grand Chute Fire Department at 2250 Grand Chute Blvd, Appleton, WI 54913.
The Winter Parking Lot & Sidewalk Maintenance Workshop is primarily for Winter Maintenance Professionals and Property Managers and will focus on:
The power of winter maintenance professionals is enormous. They are one of the few groups of people that can change the future of our water. One teaspoon of road salt will contaminate 5 gallons of water enough to exceed our federal chronic limit for chlorides. One tandem load of 10 yards of salt will contaminate about 8 million gallons of water. All of the salt we have applied to the roads over the years is still with us, only in our water.
This workshop will provide concrete suggestions for reducing chloride pollution while keeping the roads, parking lots, sidewalks safe. Thousands of winter maintenance professionals have gone through the Minnesota Pollution Control’s certification training, developed by Fortin. Of those attending, 99% said it was “very valuable” and that they would recommend it to others.
