Winter Safety: Road Salt and the Environment
By Tisha Tan

Road salts are heavily used to manage snow and ice in our urban areas. They have traditionally been a primary tool to keep our roads, sidewalks, and other paved surfaces safe for winter travel! But there is growing concern about the rising chloride levels in watersheds across the Toronto Region. 

Learn about chloride levels in waterways across the Toronto Region and their impacts on the natural environment. We'll share what is being done to reduce road salt applications and provide tips to help your own property and community!

This event is intended for a General Audience:

  • Beginner level information
  • Includes intermediate concepts
  • Content intended for older youth and adults

This event is hosted in partnership with Toronto Public Library as part of the Our Fragile Planet program series and is supported by TD Friends of the Environment (TD FEF). 

TRCA is committed to creating an accessible experience for all participants. If you require an accessibility accommodation, please contact Tisha at at least 7 days prior to the event.
