Project Overview

The goal of this project will be to research and develop statewide winter maintenance best management practices (BMPs) for inclusion in the Statewide Chloride Management Plan and Winter Maintenance Assessment tool (WMAt). The WMAt is a necessary technical resource and planning tool for stakeholders and permittees to implement the chloride reduction strategies described in the Statewide Chloride Management Plan.
This project will enhance the WMAt so that it is an effective planning tool to assist local winter maintenance professionals to reduce salt use. This will require extensive coordination with stakeholders to gather feedback and suggestions to incorporate new winter maintenance BMPs or modify existing BMPs.
