re: deicing alternatives
On January 15, Janet Warnick inquired about deicing alternatives.
I obtained the following information today from the OPPT
NEWSBREAK - I hope this helps (and I hope it works!):
"White River Junction, Vermont [Across the USA]." USA Today, 26
January 99, 13A.
An environmentally friendly road deicer that looks like
molasses is being tried by Vermont's state highway crews.
The deicer is made of magnesuim chloride and fermented
grains. Workers hope that it will last longer and cost less
than the one currently used.
