The study evaluates the quality of road surface runoff, in respect of the presence of heavy metals and hydrocarbons, with the following objectives: a) the identification and quantification of pollution loadings, and b) the provision of an adequate base for modelling studies of quantity-quality data. The report represents the first literature review for a modelling study being undertaken in an urban catchment area in north-western London. Pollutants identified are associated with the wear of vehicle tyres, vehicle lubricants and emissions, atmospheric fallout and other sources. (TRRL)
