TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Report 81: Winter Design Storm Factor Determination for Airports identifies the relevant factors in defining a winter design storm for use in sizing airport deicing runoff management systems and components.

The guidebook also provides a decision support tool for identifying an appropriate winter design storm for an airport-specific project; a review of regulations as they pertain to deicing runoff; and suggestions for target levels of service, including the acceptable level of risk of the designed system not meeting performance standards.
