Samples of stormwater have been collected from a number of flood events at two sites in Sydney. Some of the samples were subjected to simple settling in the laboratory for durations of up to one hour. For a typical urban catchment it was shown that on an annual basis, short duration settling of stormwater could remove amounts of pollutants comparable to the amounts which could be removed by tertiary treatment of secondary sewage effluent from the same catchment. The cost of settling of storm runoff would be far less than for tertiary treatment of secondary sewage effluent. /Author/
