Reuse of Military Facility for Salt and Storage

Jun 20, 2005

The village of Orland Park, Illinois (51,000), generally experiences more than 40 inches of snow each year. The village recently constructed a salt and vehicle storage facility on an old U.S. Army missile base. The facility was actually built on top of three missile silos and now stores enough salt for use during most of a winter season.
