Persistence of Road Salt in Wetlands and Watersheds

Meadow City Conservation Commission's Annual Lecture:

Tons of road salt are applied to Massachusetts highways every year, and these salts wash off roads and enter the environment. This talk will   describe how road salt persists in wetlands and watersheds because of adsorption to soil particles and retention in groundwater. Examples from   Kampoosa Bog in Stockbridge and the Mill River Watershed in Whately will be presented.

Presented by: Amy Rhodes, an environmental geochemist in the Department of Geosciences at Smith College
