Title: Inefficient overuse of road salt
Post by: BLeafe on February 24, 2019, 04:42:44 PM
The spaces had been cleared - for the most part - by plows. A few spots remained, but instead of manually throwing a bucket of salt where needed, a salt spreader was used. It made a couple of circular trips around the lot, which spread a lot of salt on the totally-cleared driving lane. It did concentrate on a couple of spots by just sitting there, but that tossed at least as much salt on clear ground.

In the end, it didn't do much good anyway.

Salt is environmentally harmful, so - in this case - it might have been a good idea to limit the usage to the few spots that needed it, rather than blanket the 90%-dry lot - especially on a day that reached 47 degrees.
