Anti-Icing (Salt Brine w/ Beet Juice) Application   

The Streets Division applies a mixture of de-sugared sugar beet molasses and salt brine during certain snow and ice events under favorable weather conditions where the liquid can enhance winter operations.  The product is all natural and completely safe for vehicles, pets, floors, etc. and is completely water soluble.  This is an 80% brine / 20% beet juice ratio applied to the road surface prior (5-7 days) to an impending snow storm.  This product starts activating once snow moisture begins and breaks the ice bond between the cold pavement and the snow falling upon it.  This allows a faster cleanup using less time with fewer scraping or plowing needed.  Please find the attached Street listing which illustrates the areas being applied.
