ITD report - deicing salt impacts
Client: Idaho Transportation Department
Audience: State DOT winter maintenance managers and staff

CTC served as principal investigator for this comprehensive 2014 research report, Impacts of Using Salt and Salt Brine for Roadway Deicing. To help inform ITD’s approach to salt use in winter maintenance, we conducted face-to-face interviews with ITD stakeholders, surveyed state DOTs, reviewed federal environmental regulations, and interviewed staff at ITD and the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality.
