Sustainable Winter Management (SWiM)®
Thursday, Oct. 20, 8:00AM - 9:15AM
Sustainability, what it means, and what benefits it provides, is at the forefront of every industry and operation. At least it should be.
The Sustainable Winter Management (SWiM)® system provides professional grounds managers a tremendous forward thinking opportunity to a better way for performing their snow and ice management operations, saving money, reducing risk, and protecting the environment by significantly reducing salt use.
Participants will learn the SWiM® v.2.0. system guidelines for: Measuring, Calibration, Prevention, Analysis, Improvement, and Optimization
