Care of Creation Tip
In gratitude, caring for God’s Air, Water, and Land
Low-Salt Diet for Our Water
Salt has many beneficial uses, but just as too much salt in our food can cause health problems, too much salt in our lakes and streams can cause damage to the water ecology. Excess salt hurts the growth of freshwater plants, plankton, zooplankton, fish, frogs, and aquatic birds. In a system where almost every plant or creature is food for a larger organisms, saltier water can disrupt food supplies. Road salt is a big source for saltwater runoff into storm sewers which lead directly to our lakes and rivers. Highway departments are working to reduce their use of salt. Thousands of homeowners salting steps, walks, and driveways also add to the saltwater runoff. You can go on a low-salt or no-salt diet for your walking and driving surfaces by using sand for traction. The darker sand also heats faster in sunlight, helping erode the slick surface of ice and snow. When the ice melts away, you can sweep up the sand and reuse it. If you happen to be replacing steps, walks, or driveways, you can choose darker colored materials that heat up in the winter sun, helping melt snow and ice.
A lot of “just one persons” working together can accomplish mighty things. ~ A message from your OSLC Care of Creation team.
