Salts applied to paved surfaces adversely impact freshwater ecosystems. The question remains: to what extent? Saline water may only be an indicator of even bigger environmental challenges, especially if salts make surface water more corrosive. Long term effects may adversely impact urban infrastructure, including sewer and transportation networks. Learn a bit of background on the phenomenon of freshwater salinization in cold climate regions as well as a Midwestern US case study measuring chloride concentrations and corrosiveness fluxes at varying scales.
Join Stormwater University for this live, educational webinar as Dr. Rebecca Kauten (Scientist in Residence for Iowa Lakeside Laboratory) presents her recent research on freshwater salinization using indices borrowed from the drinking water industry to determine possible long-term effects of salts, particularly in urban streams.
- Understand freshwater salinization as a global phenomenon impacting freshwater ecosystems, particularly in cold climate regions
- Learn three corrosiveness indexes and their application using water quality data
- Determine the potential for both salinization and corrosiveness in water resources
