Salt Management Strategy Development

This page is dedicated to the development of the Salt Management Strategy (SaMS) in the Northern Virginia region. In the boxes on the right hand side of this webpage stakeholders will find background resources, stakeholder engagement items, and project updates. These three boxes will be updated throughout the development of the SaMS, so make sure to check back for any new information.  To access available materials from SaMS meetings, please visit the SaMS Meeting Materials page.

The SaMS aims to prepare a strategy that is capable of achieving the target chloride (salt) loads identified in the Accotink Creek TMDL and that proactively addresses salt application in the broader surrounding region. The SaMS intends to accomplish this while fostering collaboration among all stakeholder groups involved in or impacted by snow and ice management to encourage long-term support for improved practices that protect public safety and lessen environmental, infrastructure and public health effects.
