What kind of deicer does the Town use?

Ahead of a storm, the Town uses a product called Torch. It is a proprietary blend of salt water, complex sugars and a small amount of rust inhibitor. Treating roads before a storm helps prevent icing, especially on elevated roadways and bridge decks. Cold, dry conditions are best for pretreatment, as precipitation washes the mixture away.
