The Federal Aviation Administration would allow Aberdeen officials to control a planned pump at the airport during emergencies.
The pump is part of a water management plan at the Aberdeen Regional Airport to Brown County.
Cody Roggatz is the city's transportation director. Roggatz says the FAA won't grant permanent control over the pump to local officials, but the agency would allow the airport manager and city manager to decide when the faster-flowing of two pumps would be turned on in the event of flooding.
The project is expected to drain water from holding ponds on the airfield south and west into a creek near Aberdeen's wastewater treatment plant. The pumps would only operate after it rains.
