Liquids 301 (Part 3 of a series of 4 sessions on the use of liquids)
5/21/2019 10:10 AM - 11:00 AM
Room: 255E

Many agencies under pressure to reduce the use of chlorides in winter maintenance are switching to liquids-based solutions including salt brine, other chloride brines, and a blend of these brines with a variety of carbohydrate-based additives. This session will explore best practices for using liquids and provide you the tools to weigh the associated labor, equipment, and materials costs.

After Attending This Session, You Will be Better Able to:
1. Quantify the expected reductions in total salt use from implementing a liquids program.
2. Identify the costs, potential reductions, and benefits of switching to liquid-assisted snow and ice management solutions.
3. Describe how a fully implemented liquids program will provide improved levels of service and safety.
