    What do you have to do to store bulk salt on your property? Is there certain criterias that have to be met? Is every county different? Washtenaw is the county I need to know about in Michigan Thanks in advance for any pointers on the subject.:help:

    This is not a county to county issue, it is regulated by the state.There is a guy around here that just got HAMMERED by the DEQ. They told him he needs a raised slab (curbs), and it needs to be contained with blocks, or a raised container. They got him on one of his commercial sites, originally, then that lead to them going to his yard. Both sites, in violation.
    Here is a link to the site, I hope this helps.

    LOL...Yeah,...the LAST thing you need after the front loader folly!:cry:
    The DEQ thing was with someone out in Davison. I'm not sure who it was,...I was told by a guy I've known for several years that works for a school system that knows this guy.
