Road Salt – Climate Smart Rhinebeck

What is salt brine? Salt brine is a solution of salt (sodium chloride, or NaCl) and water. It has a much lower freezing point than freshwater, and is a useful tool in reducing the adhesion of snow and ice to road surfaces. While some brine cocktails are exclusively saltwater, some include calcium chloride or magnesium chloride. See link for more detail.
