Salt pollution is becoming a problem. Salt pollutes drinking water sources, aids some invasive species, damages infrastructure and causes soil problems. Cities like Madison are reducing the amount of salt used on the roads and in this video from Building Wisconsin TV, we’ll show how being salt wise with water softeners can also make a big impact in reducing salt pollution. 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.
