Chloride is a unique pollutant in that once it is in our waters there is no available technology to remove it and the primary source of chloride (road salt) is currently necessary for public safety; therefore preventing chloride from entering the environment and protecting waters from degradation while still providing public safety is critical to achieving the desired water quality.Link to TCMA chloride project

County officials have calculated potential property tax bills for homes of median value in more than 80 metro-area cities (with at least 5,000 residents). For each community, the figures reflect property-value changes determined by assessors earlier this year, as well as the proposed maximum tax levies set by local governments in September. Separate calculations were made for cities whose boundaries include more than one school district. The figures do not include local tax increases approved by voters in November (with the exception of Minneapolis, which renewed a school district levy), or levy reductions proposed since September.
