A Chloride Impact Study for the Southeastern Wisconsin – Phase II

This is the second phase of SEWRPC’s four-year research project the impacts of chloride, including road salt, on surface and ground water in the seven counties of southeast Wisconsin. Now that SEWRPC has gathered extensive data from comprehensive water quality monitoring, it will develop forecasts for chloride loading based on different climate, land use, and transportation conditions and will recommend ways of reducing chloride levels in surface and ground water.
