Keeping grass green along heavy salted airport runway in spring and summer

Asked August 27, 2018, 4:53 PM EDT

How to prevent all the salt from being thrown or draining into the grass area along the airport runways?
Should a certain kind of salt be used, or how could the soil be treated in the spring to decrease the effect of increased salts in the soil? What are the possibilities or how should this be managed?
Thank you The owners would like green healthy grass during the growing season.
