Mansfield To Use Brine From Oil Drilling To Keep Roads Clear This Winter


UPDATED: Wednesday November 14, 2012 5:35 PM

A Richland County Commissioner told 10TV News on Wednesday that he received documents from studies showing that brine generated from oil drilling is safe for roads and will not impact drinking water.

Mansfield officials plan to use the brine, generated from oil drilling wells, to help keep roads clear this winter.

A contractor will mix the brine with sand to treat roads in Mansfield.

Mixing that oil well brine with sand will save about $36 per ton compared to using a traditional salt solution, according to the county commissioner.

Communities typically buy hundreds of tons of salt each year.
