The MPCA is offering a new state certification course: Smart Salting for Property Managers, on July 24, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., at the Riley Purgatory Bluff Creek Watershed District in Chanhassen.
The goal is to help property managers save money and protect water resources by using less salt to de-ice parking lots, sidewalks and other surfaces. The salt used in winter maintenance is having serious side effects on infrastructure, vegetation and lakes, streams and groundwater. Participants will learn strategies for achieving safe surfaces in the winter with less salt.
There is no fee for the training, but registration is required. Sign up online at EventBrite. For more information, contact Lauren Schulzetenberg of Fortin Consulting at 763-478-3606 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
