Did you know that “We now know that 3,600 tonnes of road salt end up in that small lagoon every winter from direct runoff in creeks and effectively poison it for the rest of the year,” in Canada alone.

In Canada About 7,600 tonnes of salt is applied each year to roads in the communityfrom 2004 to 2009, reaching a high of 4 183 000 tonnes of road salt in Canada.

We need to do something about this. We are using to much road salt. If we don’t do something then we will run out of fresh water.Only 2.5% of the water on earth and there is 7,197,137,683 people on earth. So we need to  preserve the water we have left.
