Dublin Airport

Description of the Environmental Measure

Problem detected:

The works undertaken by FCC Construcción consisted of the full refurbishment of the fuel-supply plant at Dublin Airport. Due to the local climate conditions, during the digging of trenches and drilling work, water often needed to be pumped in order to be able to perform the necessary tasks. The team therefore needed to find a solution to treat the surplus water, which was sometimes mixed with demolished stonework, before discharging it near the site, because the airport authority would not allow it to be pumped directly to the soil.

Results:

The process involved pumping the water found in trenches or pits directly to the decant system cleaning the water, and finally discharging it into the scupper of the airport’s drainage system. This decant system has contributed to reduce the residual water discharge without a previous treatment into de environment.
