On Tuesday afternoon, Governor Dannel Malloy announced that the Connecticut Department of Transportation (ConnDOT) has distributed nearly 5,000 tons of salt to 42 Connecticut cities and towns to replenish diminishing local supplies caused by an unusually harsh winter season.

Norwalk's Director of Public Works Hal Alvord said as of Wednesday, "We now have 430 tons of treated salt and 470 tons of rock salt. Typically around this time we'd have more in our shed but for now we're ok."
"Our municipalities have turned to us for help and ConnDOT has done a great job of stepping up and getting salt to the cities and towns that were facing shortages," said Governor Malloy. "These non-stop storms have put a severe strain on local supplies and budgets, but we are committed to working together to get through this and keep every mile of roadway safe and passable."
Alvord says if the snow and ice storms continue, DPW will have to order even more salt.
