[ARCHIVED] Students Visit Public Works to Learn "Green" Snow Removal Practices

Salk Kids Tour Maintenance Facility 2020 Just in time for another round of snow - Elk River Public Works staff had a great time hosting several awesome groups of eighth graders from Salk Middle School, earlier this week! Students visiting the Maintenance Facility learned about the city’s ongoing efforts to establish an environmentally-friendly snow and ice removal system, while keeping roadways as safe as possible and in turn minimizing the impacts on local waterways.

Pre-treatment along with other best practices, have resulted in a 30% reduction in salt use, and as new technology and equipment emerge the city hopes to continue to reduce the amount of salt used on city streets while maintaining the same level of safety and service.
