"Table 1 is similar to LEED v4, with the following modification:
Snow and ice removal
Example site maintenance activities
• Use environmentally preferred deicers rather than calcium chloride or sodium chloride. Examples include those that contain calcium magnesium acetate. For more guidance on environmentally preferred products, refer to the EPA’s Safer Choice standard for deicers:
• Reduce area treated with calcium chloride or sodium chloride to 50% of total deiced area by discontinuing deicer applications in low-traffic areas or converting some areas to environmentally preferred deicer.
• If deicer blend containing calcium chloride or sodium chloride in addition to other compounds is used, demonstrate compliance via reduced treatment area path."
