Military Operational Management of Deicer Run-off

During the fall of 2003, the Maine Air National Guard designed, constructed and implemented a system for diverting Aircraft Deicer Fluid (ADF) from surface water run-off to the local wastewater treatment plant. The system employs automated data acquisition and basic on-site laboratory work to ensure that maximum volume of ADF and BOD5 levels are not exceeded. Several modifications to the original design have resulted from lessons learned through the operation of the system. This paper describes the ADF diversion system, the automated data acquisition and control, and the lessons learned from operation of the system over three winter seasons.
