The communities in the DRSCW watersheds primarily use rock salt for deicing, and most of them use liquid calcium chloride as a pre-wetting agent or an anti-icing agent. A few communities use CMA or potassium acetate in addition to rock salt, and there is limited use of proprietary alternative products.
