Effluent Limitations Guidelines and Standards for Airport Deicing Operations
In EPA?s 2004 Effluent Guidelines plan, the agency announced that it would begin development of a regulation to control the pollutants discharged from airport deicing operations. Based on preliminary study and on public comments, discharges from deicing operations have the potential to cause fish kills, algae blooms, and contamination to surface or ground waters. Sources of these pollutants include airfield deicers and aircraft deicing fluid that is not properly recaptured, re-used, or treated before discharge. Aircraft deicing agents typically contain glycols and additives. There is great disparity among airports in terms of wastewater treatment and also in terms of discharge permits.
