Methodology for Salt Brine Use in a Winter Services Strategic Plan

The purpose of this project is to develop a methodology for the manufacture and storage of quality salt brine and the application of the brine in the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's (PennDOT`s) anti-icing and/or pre-wetting salt operations. Successfully providing winter services improvements, including levels-of-service, reduced winter maintenance costs, reduced corrosion of equipment, facilities, bridges, pavement, etc. and lower environmental impacts is due in large part to the quality of the salt brine that is manufactured by the PennDOT's County Maintenance Organizations.
