Livonia, MI – Hold onto your seats ladies and gentlemen. We’ve got exciting project news to share! The Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) Force-Main Deicing Discharge System project has received a 2013 Environmental Achievement Award from the Airports Council International – North America (ACI-NA) in the category of Innovative/Special Projects.
Completed in 2012, the project provides additional treatment capacity to the Wayne County Airport Authority (WCAA) for huge quantities of glycol-contaminated stormwater at DTW. OHM Advisors was the lead engineering consultant for WCAA, providing design and construction engineering services for a 5.7 mile force-main and an airport lift station.
The project presented many engineering challenges, yet the result proved to be a very successful project within a comprehensive stormwater management program.
The Airports Council International – North America (ACI-NA) represents local, regional and state governing bodies that own and operate commercial airports in the United States and Canada. ACI-NA’s members enplane more than 95 percent of the domestic and virtually all the international airline passenger and cargo traffic in North America.
