Location: Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport
Our team studied the existing spent aircraft deicing fluid (SADF) and storm sewer systems at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. The goal of the study was to develop a long-term management plan consistent with the airport master plan and Kentucky Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (KPDES) permitting requirements. The SADF and storm sewer systems were evaluated using non-proprietary computer hydraulic modeling software and specially developed mass balance models for transport of glycol through the system. We recommended upgrades and modifications as well as operational changes.
