Balancing Airport Stormwater and Wildlife Hazard Management: Analysis Tools and Guidance

Airports are required to manage the quantity and quality of stormwater on site while ensuring the safety of aircraft operations. Many stormwater management options can create potential aviation wildlife hazards. In addition, airports are faced with potentially conflicting federal, state, and local stormwater and wildlife management regulations and guidance. Research is therefore needed to develop proactive tools and guidance to assist airports in making decisions that balance stormwater management and wildlife hazard management. The objective of this research is to develop tools and guidance for airports that identify and evaluate stormwater management options and provide a set of best management practices to minimize hazards posed to aviation by wildlife.
