HIGH PRESSURE SALT BRINE DEICING CONFERENCE REPORT OF A CONFERENCE HELD MARCH 11 AND 12, 1980

The Connecticut Department of Transportation has developed a system and equipment for the direct application of salt brine which show promise of significant reductions in the salt application rates needed for snow and ice control. Six units have been built for testing in Connecticut, Minnesota and Utah. California and Washington have constructed their own units based on the Connecticut design. These are being field tested to determine the effectiveness and costs of using salt brine for deicing. This report covers the conference held in Connecticut on March 11 and 12, 1980 on High Pressure Salt Deicing. The conference was designed to acquaint maintenance and research personnel from States, counties and cities with the salt brine system. It also provided the States of California, Minnesota, Utah and Washington an opportunity to discuss their field work. (FHWA)
