[ARCHIVED] NVRC Hosts DEQ Northern Virginia Salt Management Strategy


NVRC was pleased to host the first stakeholder advisory committee meeting on the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality northern Virginia salt management strategy (SaMS). The SaMS aims to prepare a strategy that is capable of achieving the target chloride (salt) loads identified in the Accotink Creek TMDL and that proactively addresses salt application in the broader surrounding region. The SaMS intends to accomplish this while fostering collaboration among all stakeholder groups involved in or impacted by snow and ice management to encourage long-term support for improved practices that protect public safety and lessen environmental, infrastructure and public health effects.
