Willmar notebook: Snow brings icy thoughts of Freon
One of the last things Kevin Madsen would like to see accomplished in his last month as Civic Center manager is an engineering study.
Willmar, like almost every other community in the state with an ice arena, must kick the Freon habit by the end of the decade.
The Montreal Protocol and the Clean Air Act has mandated the end of a certain refrigerant that deplete the ozone layer.
What is not clear, Madsen said, is a reasonable replacement for R22.
