DUSTFALL ANALYSIS FOR THE PAVEMENT STORM RUNOFF STUDY (I-405 LOS ANGELES)

Highway surface runoff contains materials that are removed from the surface by the flushing and solvent action of rainfall. The source of these materials can be traced to vehicles, the highway surface, roadside vegetation, litter, chemical spills, and atmospheric 'fallout'. This report discusses a study conducted by the California Department of Transportation Laboratory to determine the concentration of constituents which are impacting the roadway surface as a result of atmospheric 'fallout' conditions. A section of freeway in the Los Angeles area was sampled for air particulates during July-August 1976 and again during February-March 1977.
