    Does anyone know if its legal to use?? I know some citys are using it and they dump it on dirt roads all summer long to keep the dust down, but can I use it on a parking lot for ice??
    Im gonna start using it but Im just trying to find out for sure if its legal??

    something to consider

    I would do a test area first. I think i read somewhere here that natural well brines from the petroleum industry have residual that gives a slippery effect to the surface. Not sure of the legal aspect. I have not heard of it being illegal.

    I knew I would catch heck for spelling it like that. Anyhow, I have been testing it and it works really good. I am thinking of pre wetting my rock salt. I am hoping it might cut back on some rock salt usage. Ive got a really good source for the "Brine". Im gonna get the Snow Ex pre wet system next week and see how it goes.

    I know some people that use it and it works good. They say it doesnt work under 10-15F but good rock salt replacement
