Each fall, the Nine Mile Creek Watershed District hosts Smart Salting workshops. At these workshops contractors who manage snow and ice learn practices to use salt effectively, and how to apply these practices. They take a test to become certified by the MPCA.
If you hire a contractor to manage snow and ice on your property, check to see if they are certified. If not, encourage them to attend our training on November 8th in Eden Prairie.
Anybody who maintains entryways, sidewalks, or other small areas should watch this video by Fortin Consulting.
