Town of Madison Salt Brining Workshop – Tuesday April 19th – REGISTER NOW!

On Tuesday, April 19 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. Madison’s Department of Public Works and town officials will share how they were able to reduce salt use and save money this winter using a salt brining system and truck. Brining is a process that liquefies salt before it is applied to roadways and has been found to be more effective at melting ice and snow while reducing road salt applications by more than 50%. This program is free and open to the public, geared towards town officials, road agents, private contractors, lake associations and others interested in reducing salt use.

Please pre-register by contacting as space is limited. The workshop is free and open to the public will be held at the Madison Department of Public Works located at 1923 Village Rd, Madison, NH 03849, adjacent to the Madison Elementary School. This program is a collaboration between Madison, GMCG, Saco Headwaters Alliance and UNH Technology Transfer Center. Program participants receive 1 Environmental Roads Scholar hour for their participation and a certificate of completion from UNHT2.

For more information on the hazards of road salts and how to reduce their use visit GMCG’s website.

Please share with town officials, road agents, highway departments, DPW folks and others who can benefit from this information. Thank you!
