Onalaska Salt Wise Winter Equipment Open House

Event Description

The City of Onalaska DPW decided to do a study of two areas of the city.  Every storm they applied different pre-treatments and post treatments with salt and salt brines.  They took pictures throughout the next day to see how the products worked. This is where the turning point came. It is hard to deny that salt brine works when you have side-by-side photos.

Staff members are now advocates for the use of brines and liquids. With an understanding of - and confidence in - liquids, they are changing as many pieces of equipment over to applying brines as possible.

We'd like to facilitate conversation around current salting practices, goals and barriers, and brainstorm solutions through a show-and-tell of municipal snow and ice management equipment. Municipal streets crews from western Wisconsin are invited to bring a salting truck or just show up.


This event is being held in conjunction with a Smart Salting for Parking Lots and Sidewalks training.
