Road salt contains chloride, and its excessive use can have devastating effects on freshwater species. In fact, when at peak levels such as the winter, some waterways are just as salty as the ocean! Freshwater fish can’t survive in water that’s too salty, and too much chloride in the water kills eggs and larvae of wildlife such as mussels.
