Hello everyone,

I am developing and designing a corporate de-icing salt reduction program. To complement the work that has been done to reduce road salt on our transportation networks, we are interested in reducing de-icing salt applications from the industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) sectors. I would like to make contact with others who have looked or are looking into this issue. Particularly, we are interested in any research that has been done on the following:

- Regulatory options
- Behaviour change programs
- Measuring/estimating ICI salt application rates
- Efforts to minimize the liability barrier (ie. insurance claim risks)

We have initiated some projects and research and would be willing to share our data as well.

Thanks for your help.
