*NEW* for 2020 – Use of Salt Brine
The South Milwaukee Street Department will begin to use a salt brine solution on our roadways this winter.  Salt brine is a solution of salt (typically sodium chloride) and water.  It has a freezing point lower than pure water and, as such, is a useful tool in reducing the adhesion of snow and ice to road surfaces.  The use of salt brine is considered to be an anti-icing proactive taken to decrease the likelihood of snow and ice bonding to the pavement surface. Anti-icing  involves placing a layer of brine on the surface of the pavement before the winter storm has begun.  For more information about the Salt Brine process, click here.
