Dumped Road Salt Removed from Parking Lot

A big thank you to Borough Administrator Ron Kistner and the Allendale DPW for removing those five large recycling bins of rock salt that had been inadvertently dumped in the Celery Farm parking lot on the afternoon before Christmas -- likely by a county salt-spreading truck.

Ace birder Julie McCall and I shoveled the salt into the bins before it got washed into the Allendale Brook.

An article in The Philadelphia Inquirer earlier this month explains why salt is so bad for local waterways and Lake Appert.

Thanks, DPW!
