RE: Snow/ice contaminated with gas/diesel

The solubility of water in gasoline is very low; much less than 1%.
Diesel should have a similar solubility. Separation can be improved by
addition of salts to the aqueous phase. Even without the addition of
salts, the water would contain minor amounts of petroleum product which
likely could be handled by a sewage treatment plant.
