A Stormwater Runoff Best Management Practice (BMP)

Stormwater Drain

There is always that next project - building an area for cars and trucks that are waiting to pick up passengers, adding airports services for travelers, expanding the terminals. You name it and it is on the list. But in light of all the projects that need to get done, you still have to maintain what you have now and keep it looking great. TYMCO builds sweepers to keep your entire airport looking its best. From all of the internal streets and roads connecting terminals, loading and unloading areas, parking garages and remote parking lots as well as runways, TYMCO builds a sweeper to keep your airport clean.

Airports are required to implement a number of Best Management Practices (BMPs) for stormwater management. There are several different BMPs that can be implemented such as adding additional landscaping, installing storm drain catch basins and sweeping paved surfaces on a frequent basis. Sweeping airport runways, ramps and aprons on a regular basis obviously keeps the larger debris from going down storm drains, but sweeping with a TYMCO Regenerative Air Sweeper will also remove all of the fine dust particulates out of the cracks and crevices.

More often than not, fine dust particulates can be more damaging to stormwater runoff than larger debris. This dust can contain several different contaminants and toxins like vehicle lubricants, coolants and brake dust, petroleum products used in pavements as well as other contaminants that fall on parking area, apron and taxiway surfaces. Whenever there is a rain event, anything left on the paved surface will be picked up by the stormwater runoff and flow into local waterways.
