Liquid Anti-Icers

If you live in Salmon Arm, you've probably asked yourself, why does the City of Salmon Arm spray liquid on the streets when a snow fall event is predicted. It may seem dangerous to add liquid to a street that might freeze, but this liquid can be helpful when winter driving conditions are at the worst. This liquid prevents snow from sticking to the street and prevents frost or black ice from forming. This is the most cost effective technique used in the winter months for icy street conditions and a recommended practice in the American Public Works Association (APWA) handbook for snow and ice control.
