New stormwater system also manages deicing fluid

Dane County Regional Airport experiences harsh winter storms. Due to increasing operations, the airport wanted a management system that was easier to maintain. The airport also wanted to save on costs related to energy use, lab testing and wastewater treatment. We met with airport management and airline representatives to confirm their goals. Then, our engineering team designed a new system that samples, tests, stores and discharges. The new computerized testing and pumping is more efficient, reduces staff needs, and can test on-site water in minutes instead of days. Our team provided project design and construction administration services, leading to a new glycol management system that is a success for the client, the community and the environment.

Underground glycol tanks, with a combined capacity of 1.1 million gallons, are constructed near the effluent pump station. Construction on the entire management system was completed on-time and under budget.
