A METHOD OF PREDICTING ROAD SALT RUNOFF IN NEW HAMPSHIRE FOR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ANALYSES

A predictive method is developed to forecast the "worst case" amount of sodium (Na+) and chloride (C1-) ions added to surface waters as a result of highway deicing chemicals. Assumptions are based upon hydrological, topographical and meteorological characteristics specific to the central New Hampshire region. This worst case model is a seasonal method which is based upon all salt running off during a six month salting season (November-April). Specific geographical names are omitted as the project for which this model was developed is not finalized at this writing. /Authors/
