Abstract/Contents:"Although some of the de-icing salt is taken away in the motorway drains to the main drainage channels, some gets into the roadside soil and percolates down with the infiltrating water to deeper levels. This results in periodic increases in the salt content of ground water, which even in summer months is higher than that of unaffected ground water. The highest salt pollution is in the percolating water of areas immediately beside the motorway, although high Na and Cl concentrations are also found in surface wells and springs whose catchment areas border the motorway. Depending on the number of years during which salt is applied, the application rate and the geological formation, the limit for drinking water (WHO standard: 200 mg Cl/l) may be exceeded. The investigations showed that under certain hydrogeological conditions de-icing salts may affect not only surface wells alongside motorways but also deep wells."
