    In the Engineering Notes section of PUBLIC WORKS magazines October issue there is an article called "Eight Win Salt Storage Awards."

    The Salt Institute in Alexandria Va. awareded 8 the 2003 Excellence in Storage Award.

    This award recognizes high standards of environmental consciousness and effective management of winter materials storage. The top eight are:


    -Canterbury Maintenance Facility (CT DOT)
    -East Great Plains Maintenance Facility (CT DOT)
    -Groton Maintenance Facility (CT DOT)
    -Marlborough Maintenance Facility (CT DOT)
    -City of Houghton Dept Of Public Works (Houghton Mich)
    -McHenry County Highway Dept (Woodstock Ill)
    -Hooksett/Hampton Maintenance Facility (NH DOT Bureau of Turnpikes)
    -Shawnee Mission Maintenance Facility (City of Overland Park Kan.)

    Congratulations to all 8 Facilities.

    I was proud to see that 4 of the top 8 were CT DOT facilities. It says a lot to see that our state is being environmentally safe in handling its Sand/Salt supplies.

    They are just completing a brand new Salt Shed on the Southern end of the Westrock tunnel. Very impressive looking barn.
