Dalhousie guest lecture: Fate and transport of road salt chloride in urbanizing watersheds

While the beneficial role of road salts for public safety is unequivocal, the environmental consequences of their use can pose significant risks to freshwater ecosystems. The overall goal of this research is to improve our understanding of how chloride is transported through watersheds and how this impacts the risk of toxicity to aquatic biota. In this presentation Dr. Claire Oswald will discuss key results from two chloride-related projects.
