Your Best Shot: Lake George Highway Department Receives SWiM Certification

The town of Lake George is the first municipality in North America to earn the Sustainable Winter Management Program certification for maintaining safe winter driving conditions while reducing the use of road salt. The FUND for Lake George has identified road salt runoff as one of the greatest threats to the water quality of Lake George and other area waterways, and is coordinating a multi-year salt reduction effort among the municipalities in the Lake George basin, with a goal of reducing road salt use by 50 percent by 2020.
