Remember how a lot of New Jersey towns ran out of road salt last winter because the Garden State kept getting hit by snowstorms? Road salt companies now say the higher-than-normal demand has cut supplies this year, and that is forcing prices higher.
As the region continues to face harsh winter weather and the need for roads to be salted, environmentalists are becoming concerned that such high amounts of salt will start to impact our waterways, trees, plants and wildlife.
With another winter blast expected to bring a light coating of snow to parts of the Garden State on Wednesday, a load of much-needed rock salt is still stuck on a barge in Searsport, Maine, the Asbury Park Press has reported.
