Looks as if toxic snow from road debris, salt, oil antifreeze and other chemicals is now being dumped into our water ways due to the severe weather conditions. Although this is an emergency weather situation this could pose an environmental and human heath risk.
The EPA does not directly regulate the dumping of snow; but the EPA does recommend that snow be dumped into water.
Dumping this type debris in the water is risky.
