The Adirondack Road Salt Reduction Task Force in September released its long-awaited recommendations to rein in the region’s road salt use, but a central question remains. What next?

The Adirondack Explorer will be hosting a discussion on Feb. 15 at the Wild Center beginning at 10 a.m. to dive into that question and many others with a panel of government leaders, task force members and independent experts.

Admission is free. We hope you will join us to learn more about the report and the path forward.

Panelists (subject to change):

  • A.J. Smith — DEC division of water

  • Rob Fitch — DOT director of transportation maintenance

  • Sawyer Bailey — Adirondack community advocate

  • Tracy Eldridge — task force member, Hamilton County superintendent of public works

  • Chris Navitsky — task force member, Lake George waterkeeper

  • Rob Vopleus — salt use adviser, former Town of Lake George operator

  • Brendan Wiltse — senior research scientist at the Adirondack Watershed Institute
