AdkAction: Adirondack area plow drivers take part in road salt reduction workshop

Plow drivers in Adirondack area towns took part in a road salt reduction workshop in Peru.

Plow drivers from Peru, Ausable, Plattsburgh and Hague gathered recently in Peru for a workshop to reduce road salt. Thank you to these communities and individuals for going the extra mile to keep winter roads safe and water clean.

Experts from Hague, [including] Rob, Matt, and Tim, demonstrated drop calibration tests with salt trackers on a plow truck to help other shops in our Clean Water, Safe Roads Network learn what the trackers can do for their winter road maintenance operation. By calibrating with a salt tracker, operators have an exact measurement how much salt their trucks are spreading across a lane mile, allowing them to apply salt with more precision.
