Description

Across upstate New York, road salt has seeped into drinking water supplies, poisoned wells, endangered public health and threatened people with financial ruin. In and around the Adirondack Park, world-class wilderness protections have done little to protect anyone from this damage. The salt that highway crews still use to keep roads passable for winter tourists may now be one of the largest threats to the park and its people since acid rain.
