A brief description of the snow and ice removal program, policy, or practice:

In 2009 UWRF began using liquid magnesium chloride on walks to reduce the amount of sand/salt usage.
As of Fall 2011, a new storage building for salt/sand is being constructed to house all sand and salt in a covered building and will greatly reduce the potential leeching of salt and sand into the South Fork of the Kinnikinnic River
