Salt pollution in our streams, lakes and ground water causes many problems. Salt inhibits fish growth and reproduction and is beneficial to some invasive species. It also pollutes drinking water sources, damages infrastructure and causes soil problems. Being salt wise means reducing salt use on roads and sidewalks and in this video from Building Wisconsin TV, we show how being salt wise with water softeners can also make a big impact. Host Stuart Keith meets with Steve Breitlow and Cory Thompson from Plumbers Local 75, Kathy Lake from the Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District, Luke Bauer from Monona Plumbing & Fire Protection and Allison Madison from WI Salt Wise. Learn how a water softener works, how it’s repaired and when it should be replaced.
