Comparing the environmental effects for a permeable snow cooling plant to an above ground snow deposit
2009 (English)Student paper otherStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

Urban snow is often removed from roads to above ground snow deposits (AGSD). Alternatively it can be placed in permeable snow cooling plants (PSCP), snow deposits that pipe chilled water to heat exchangers for summer cooling. Since urban snow is polluted, contaminant loads leaving a PSCP and an AGSD must be compared. A PSCP blocks particulate flow containing over 98% of metal contaminants while some particulate contaminants will be transported with the surface water flow from an AGSD. However, the more bio-available dissolved contaminants can have similar or very different infiltration amounts for an AGSD/PSCP depending on soil parameters.
