    Surface water contamination by road salt is an obvious and easily studied issue. The real problem is the groundwater contamination. Salt contamination in water supplies is common in residential groundwater supplies typical to the Adirondacks and surrounding areas. Homes are typically constructed along highway access and in rural hamlets that often have a salt stockpile nearby – both areas of severe road salt impact.

    It is often unrecognized until extreme, more difficult and expensive to study and impossible or at best extremely expensive to remediate. But the contamination nonetheless has a direct and well documented impact on human health. Ask any medical professional.
