Milwaukee to reduce winter road salt with cheese brine
Another Wisconsin community will try mixing cheese brine with road salt in hopes of reducing the salt's environmental impact.
The donated mozzarella brine comes from a cheese plant in Dresser, Wisconsin. Several highway departments in the northwest part of the state are mixing the brine with road salt to put on roads in the winter. The city of Milwaukee will now experiment with the mix in its Bay View neighborhood.
