Guidelines for the Selection of Snow and Ice Control Materials To Mitigate Environmental Impacts

The objective of this project is to develop guidelines for selection of snow and ice control chemicals and abrasives, based on their constituents, performance, environmental impacts, cost, and site-specific conditions. For the purpose of this study, environmental impacts include effects on human health; aquatic life; flora and fauna; surface-water and groundwater quality; air quality; vehicles; and physical infrastructure including bridges, pavements, railway electronic signaling systems, and power distribution lines.
