  • Abstract:
    Liquid-only plowing is a method of removing snow and ice on the road by applying liquid chemicals directly to the roadway surface. It also serves as an anti-icing tool. The goal of the Liquid-Only Plow Routes project was to create a set of training and promotional tools for the implementation of liquid-only roadway treatments. This information can serve as a resource for agencies seeking to gain buy-in within their organization for this type of winter maintenance, as well as for agencies already using these roadway treatments. It can also inform the general public while dispelling myths and misconceptions. The tools created as part of this project include: 1. Literature Search Report: We researched the documented practices of liquid-only plow routes from agency and media sources, evaluated the applicability of the sources, and created a literature search report. 2.Survey of Practice: We compiled a list of 679 survey recipients from agencies in 27 US states and sent them an online survey to determine if their agency uses liquid-only roadway treatments, and if they would be interested in participating in a phone interview. We identified 22 recipients that agreed to be interviewed regarding their usage of these treatments. We performed the interviews and compiled the results into a report. 3.Quick Reference Guides: We created two quick reference guides for easy access to liquid-only plowing resources and information. The first guide, “Liquid-Only Road Treatments Start-Up Reference Guide,” includes information on benefits, tips for gaining buy-in, and equipment recommendations. The second guide, “Liquid-Only Road Treatments Technical Reference Guide,” includes usage parameters and application rates. 4.Videos: We produced two videos – a shorter video that focuses on benefits and dispelling myths, and a longer video that includes that information along with recommendations on how to start a liquid-only program, equipment guidelines, and usage parameters and application rates. The final videos are available to view on YouTube through the following links: •Short Version: •Full Version:
