THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF DEICERS IN AIRPORT STORMWATER RUNOFF. IN: CHEMICAL DEICERS AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Airports have long been recognized as facilities associated with noise pollution and potential groundwater contamination due to fuel releases. Airports have also received increasing scrutiny directed toward the potential environmental impacts resulting from the wintertime use of deicing chemicals and their subsequent occurrence in stormwater runoff. Due to this growing concern, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Surface Water Quality Division, in 1990, conducted an investigation into the practice of aircraft and runway deicing. This entailed a literature review, information gathering from airport representatives, deicer applicators and deicer formulators, and field studies to investigate potential environmental impacts of the practice.
