Milwaukee to Use Cheese Brine on Streets in Winter Pilot Program

Alderman Zielinski’s resolution directing the City’s Department of Public Works to come up with a report on using cheese brine with salt on our streets is complete. Milwaukee will mix cheese brine with salt to de-ice city streets on a pilot program basis this winter. Cheese brine is more environmentally friendly than salt and the program will give a functional use to what is normally just a waste product. The use of cheese brine could also save money for the City in the long run.
