5/20/2019 2:00 PM - 2:50 PM
Room: 255E

To switch from dry material (sand or salt) usage to pre-wet salt and liquid anti-icing applications, several factors need to be considered:  the type of equipment needed for pre-wetting and liquids application; approaches for staff training regarding the benefits of liquids and overcoming the “we’ve always done it this way” attitude; and the environmental impacts and benefits of using liquids.

After Attending This Session, You Will be Better Able to:
1. Identify the equipment required for liquid application.
2. Discuss the environmental benefits and impacts associated with pre-wetting and liquids.
3. Examine the steps for setting up a staff training program in the usage of liquids.
