maintained them to minimize safety concerns
“We first tested the mix on 10 acres
where it reduced grass cutting by one-third
when combined with the airport’s newly
implemented fertilizer and growth inhibiter
program,” Aljets said. Another 10 acres will
be added in 2013 and, eventually, the entire
airport will be reseeded.
Aljets said other initiatives included working
with a fertilizer firm to come up with a program
that included weed treatment, fertilizer and growth
inhibiter on the rest of the airport site.
“The port authority has been able to work with
RS&H, USDA and our local lawn treatment chemical
firms to develop a real cost-cutting strategy with
long-term safety benefits,” Arnold said, adding
that the airport was able to repurpose some older
pavement deicing trucks to use for spraying the turf
growth inhibiter and fertilizer.
We have a different take on image quality image usability.
“We were able to make a small adjustment to the seed
specifications that are used on our FAA AIP projects to
allow us to use grass species that would grow less and
at the same time be less favorable to wildlife — mostly
geese — which is important to runway safety.”
“The cost savings have been incredible and give us
greater flexibility with our staff,” Arnold said. “The
costs of the chemicals were more than made up for
by the reduction costs for fuel and maintenance of
the mowers. Also, the additional safety benefits for
all users with fewer vehicles needing to be in the
safety areas also will be a great improvement for the
entire airport community.”
