Public can help put Minn. waters on low-salt diet

Email

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is asking for the public's help in putting the state's waters on a low-salt diet this winter.

When snow and ice accumulate on roads, parking lots and sidewalks, out comes the salt to melt it. When the snow and ice melt, most of the salt runs off with it, washing into lakes and streams. And once that salt gets in the water, it becomes a permanent pollutant.
