Portland International Airport: Deicing Collection System

The Portland International Airport Deicing Collection & Treatment System Enhancement project consisted of a new on-site treatment facility working in conjunction with new and existing collection and distribution systems to manage deicing materials during the winter season. The deicing collection, storage, and treatment was expanded and enhanced to improve water quality in the Columbia Slough. The project involved the installation of a 3-million-gallon concentrated storage tank, two 6.5-million-gallon dilute storage tanks, a fluidized bed anaerobic reactor treatment system housed in a new 12,000sf treatment building, three new pump stations to transport dilute fluid to the storage tanks, modifications to two existing pump stations, a new pump station to discharge dilute fluid to the Columbia River, and a new outfall to the Columbia River.

Scope: Commissioned systems included all treatment process mechanical, electrical, and control systems (pumps, instrumentation, PLC controls); Treatment Building & Pump Station HVAC and controls; emergency power generation and distribution systems; lighting/e-lighting, security, and CCTV systems among others.
