CDE was tasked with the design/build to repair the existing aircraft wash and rinse racks. The previous system did not recycle any water and hads to use fresh water for each plane, a total of 1,000 gallons per plane with 95 planes being rinsed weekly. The new design incorporates a system that removes the surfactants from the wash water, reuses the water and replaces water. The rinse rack which is adjacent to the runway and rinses each aircraft that passes through the taxiway throat.
