A brief description of the snow and ice removal program, policy, or practice:
Sewanee currently practices a no-rock-salt policy in order to reduce the environmental impact of our snow and ice removal. Our snow removal practices are using backpack blowers and brushes attached to our mowers that brush or blow snow off the walkways and steps. Ice treatment is coarse sand that is applied through spreaders onto the sidewalks and steps. Franklin County spreads rock salt onto the state maintained streets and some parking lots as we need their assistance.
