Salt Management Guide, Second Edition

With over one million kilometres of road, Canada's extensive network provides a safe, efficient and affordable means of surface transportation and supports a wealth of economic and social activities. Many individuals rely on the Canadian road network for transport to the workplace and a wide array of economic uses, for recreation and leisure activities, and for emergency and security services. The de-icer of choice continues to be salt. Since TAC's Salt Management Guide was published in 1999, advancements have been made in the field of salt management. In order to keep the Guide current, an update of the document was deemed necessary to incorporate the research and lessons learned in the past ten years. This Guide and the Syntheses of Best Practices continue to identify and described ways of handling and using salt to maintain its usefulness within winter maintenance while reducing its adverse effects to the environment.
