Airports

The aviation industry in general and airports in particular have many vegetation and storm water management problems. Controlling vegetation is a major issue for airports of all sizes. Left untreated, undesirable vegetation will destroy the structure of runways, obscure and damage fence lines, create security vulnerabilities, obstruct the flow of storm water, and create an unpleasing appearance.



Storm Water Management

Environmental Compliance Operations Group (ECO Group) is the division of NaturChem that specializes in helping businesses, industry and all levels of government comply with local, state and federal environmental regulations. ECO Group understands the complexities of the regulations for stormwater Best Management Practices. The BMPs are consistent with local EPA regulations, Clean Water Act (CWA) codes, and the National Pollution Discharge Eliminations System (NPDES) permit. Our goal is to help our customers understand these regulations and present them with a comprehensive stormwater facilities (SWF) maintenance plan.


Benefits

NaturChem provides many beneficial services to the aviation industry. Some of the services and their benefits are:

 Vegetation growing through cracked and broken runways is treated to enhance safety, improve appearance and preserve the integrity of the structure.

 Fence lines are treated to prevent vegetation creating security issues and destroying the fence.

 Large open fields in and around airports are treated with selective herbicides and growth regulating chemistries. These treatments kill weeds and suppress the development of seed heads in grasses. Seed head suppression results in fewer seeds and reduces the likelihood of bird strikes. Selective weed control combined with growth regulation and seed head suppression also saves money for the airports and makes them more visually appealing for the public.

 Trees create issues when they grow too tall and threaten to impede the take off or landing of aircraft. They also become obstacles to proper visibility. Trees and brush that threaten to become problems are removed by cutting or mulching. After trees are removed, these areas are treated with herbicides to prevent significant re-sprouting.

 All airports have Storm Water Management systems. They can be a simple system of ditches or they can be much more complicated. NaturChem can reclaim, repair or maintain any storm water management system. These include Retention Ponds, Detention Ponds, Retention & Bio Swales, Drainage Ditches, Bio-Retention Ponds, Catch Basins, and Underground Retaining Systems.
