Smart Salting for Property Managers
Please join us for the new MPCA state certification course: Smart Salting for Property Managers. We will be piloting this training class on May 15th and June 5th, 9 am - 1 pm at the Riley Purgatory Bluff Creek Watershed District in Chanhassen MN.
Our goal is to help property managers save money and protect the water of MN. The salt used in winter maintenance is having serious side effects on infrastructure, vegetation and our lakes, rivers and ground water. Learn strategies for having safe surfaces in the winter with less salt!
We have discovered that by training winter maintenance professionals we are only partially successful at reducing salt use. One of the barriers for lower salt winter maintenance are the property managers. There has been no training available for this group. By developing this certification course we hope to a baseline of understanding between the property managers and the winter maintenance on winter maintenance best practices. This should provide a path forward with lower salt winter maintenance but providing the same level of service needed for safety.
Riley Purgatory Bluff Creek Watershed District will be hosting the class. They do a wonderful job of providing refreshments/lunch for the class. The attendees will be treated very well as we work together to get them certified and test out our training materials for this brand new program!
The training is free but registration is required. Here is the link:
