Anti-Icing ("Beet Heet" Blend) Application   

The Streets Division applies a mixture of de-sugared sugar beet molasses and salt brine during certain snow and ice events under favorable weather conditions where the liquid can enhance winter operations.  The product is environmentally friendly and safe for vehicles, pets, floors, etc. The liquid being applied is a blend of "Beet Heet", Salt Brine, and Chlorides which applied to the road surface prior (1-5 days) to an impending snow storm.  This product starts activating once snow moisture begins and breaks the ice bond between the cold pavement and the snow falling upon it.  This allows for faster clean up of streets and less usage of salt.  Please find the attached Street listing which illustrates the areas being applied.
