A Salty Tale for Minnesota Lakes and Streams

Visit Hardwood Creek Library to hear the latest science regarding the impacts of chlorides, and get tips for reducing your salt use at home and in your community.

Did you know that more than 40 lakes and streams in the Twin Cities area are considered impaired because of too much salt? And that 30% of our shallow wells have elevated levels of salt as well? Come to this short presentation to learn the latest science regarding the impacts of chlorides (salt) on our water resources and what state and local government is doing to address the problem.

Angie Hong, education specialist with the Washington Conservation District, will share success stories from cities and property managers that have reduced their salt use and saved money, and will provide tips for reducing your salt use at home.
