A REVIEW OF THE CONTAMINANTS AND TOXICITY ASSOCIATED WITH PARTICLES IN STORMWATER RUNOFF

This report focuses on the relationship between particles contaminants, and toxicity in roadway runoff. It examines particle size, pollutant levels, and toxicity in storm water runoff from highway facilities. It studies existing methods for the collection of storm water samples and subsequent measurements of toxicity, heavy metals, organic pollutants, and particle size distributions. Finally the report identifies knowledge gaps that currently limit the ability of the California Dept. of Transportation (Caltrans) to mitigate stormwater pollution through the development and implementation of best management practices (BMPs).
