$175K grant awarded to study road salt impact on Mirror Lake

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (WCAX) More money is coming to help study the impact of road salt on Mirror Lake in Lake Placid.

The Ausable River Association was given a $175,000 grant by the Lake Champlain Basin Program. Officials say the purpose of the grant is to advance science-based approaches to reducing road salt impacts on the lake and Chubb River watershed.

Officials hope this can serve as a model for other urban areas that are dealing with similar issues with road salt pollution.
