Snow Removal Do your part to help protect the water we use and enjoy. Lakes and streams are now more than ever becoming more polluted with chlorides from the salt we use in the winter. Take action to reduce chloride pollution by doing a few simple things. Use liquid de-icer before snowstorms to reduce ice build up. Break out that snow shovel or snow blower early and often during the storm if possible. Keeping the snow off the pavement will decrease the chances of ice sticking to the pavement. Be attentive to your driveway and sidewalks, keep them clear of snow. Next month February. Last Month December.
