Abstract

"The Talk of Maine" piece on a change in snow-removal tactics on Maine roads, dating to the late 1990s. The new approach, called anti-icing, is to spray salt brine on the road in advance of a storm, which keeps the snow from packing down and freezing to the road surface, and makes it easier to plow. The method is cheaper, both in materials and time, but has led to an increase in complaints about salt contamination of wells and corroded brake lines and other rust in automobiles.
