SNOW AND ICE CONTROL: ROAD SALT USE IN MINNESOTA. WORKSHOP PROCEEDINGS, HELD AT ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA ON SEPTEMBER 13, 1977

The Snow and Ice Control Workshop was held in response to a Proposal that the Committees on Transportation and Environment and Natural Resources establish a special subcommittee to examine the feasibility of salt use by the Department of Transportation and other road authorities throughout the state of Minnesota for the purpose of snow and ice control on roads and streets. It was also proposed that the subcommittee undertake a study with the objective of finding substitute deicing materials that would reduce the negative effects of salt on vehicles and the environment. This publication includes the presentations of each of the speakers who participated in the workshop. Section one contains the three papers dealing with the current use of road salt in Minnesota. Section two follows with papers concerning corrosion and its structural consequences. Section three deals with environmental problems. The final section deals with alternative snow and ice control methods.
