NHDES and Partners are Hosting the 3rd Annual NH Salt Symposium

There is still time to register for the:  

2016 New Hampshire Salt Symposium: “Where Commercial Salt Applicators Come to Learn About Winter Property Management”

September 13, 2016 at the Grappone Center in Concord, NH

Watershed organizations and municipalities can encourage commercial salt applicators in their community to attend or consider sending their own staff or contractors. Attendees will be updated on the latest snow industry technologies and Best Management Practices and will earn continuing education credits for the New Hampshire Salt Applicator Certificate, the Snow and Ice Management’s (SIMA) Certified Snow Professional Certificate, and T2 Roads Scholar Program Contact Hours.  This year’s Featured Speaker will be WMUR Meteorologist, Kevin Skarupa.  Register or learn more about the event at http://www.sima.org/new-hampshire-salt-symposium

With winter road, walkway, and parking lot applications of salt resulting in documented impacts to New Hampshire waterways, a law was adopted in 2013 providing certified applicators who participate in the NH Certified Green SnowPro program, follow best management practices and keep basic records with limited liability for damages arising from hazards caused by snow or ice. This groundbreaking, legal, precedent has added another dimension to “first in the nation” status for New Hampshire as other states across the country consider emulating this initiative that protects small, locally owned businesses in New Hampshire from unwarranted insurance claims.

Note:  The Symposium only provides continuing education credits to those contractors already certified in the NH Green SnowPro Program.
