Chemicals Used for Ice Control

Chemical deicers lower the freezing point of water, allowing lower temperature before ice forms on roads. Chemical application does not guarantee ice-free roadways, but can definitely keep roads safer. The initial application is to hills, curves, bridges and major arterials and lifeline routes (primary roads).

Kitsap County uses a chloride (salt) brine diluted with water to 23.3% sodium chloride. Sodium chloride is the safest and most cost-effective anti-icing product available. Click here for more facts and commonly asked questions about the anti-icing program or watch the video clip below.

Video: "Around Kitsap" segment about how Kitsap County prepares for winter weather on County-maintained roads. It includes an inside look at the salt brine program.
