Winter Maintenance Application Rates and Guidance for Parking Lots, Sidewalks and Trails


Winter maintenance professionals who clear snow and ice from parking lots, sidewalks, and trails can use locally-tailored application rate guidelines for using the least amount of salt to get the job done. They can also voluntarily become certified, to demonstrate to their clients that they work for their safety and for the protection of our lakes, streams and drinking water. Visit the City of Madison's Winter Salt Certification webpage to learn more about this program.
