Yahara Lakes 101 with Hilary Dugan
About the talk
Road salt is often thought of as an ‘environmentally safe’ chemical. However, at high concentrations, chloride can alter aquatic ecosystems by stressing freshwater species, and deteriorate drinking water sources. For 70+ years, we have applied road salt (sodium chloride) to paved surfaces, without any regard for the environmental consequences.
In this month’s Yahara Lakes 101 talk, Hilary Dugan will discuss long-term chloride trends and the state of our lakes across the Midwest and Northeast United States with regard to chloride contamination. We’ll also learn what is currently being done locally to curtail further environmental damage.
This event is at The Edgewater. Come at 7:30 a.m. for a meet-and-greet and to enjoy your coffee, pastries, and fruit. The program begins at 8 a.m., and class is dismissed by 9 a.m. Complimentary event parking will be available at The Edgewater.
