WATER POLLUTION ASPECTS OF PARTICLES WHICH COLLECT ON HIGHWAY SURFACES

Caltrans studied the nature of constituents in pavement runoff waters at three sites during the winter of 1975 through winter of 1977. Sample sites were located at I-405 Los Angeles, I-680 Walnut Creek, and Route 50 Placerville. Discrete samples were obtained at various times during storm runoff and tested at the Transportation Laboratory in Sacramento. Some 34 different physical, chemical, and biological parameters were measured. This report presents the findings of this study. This information can be used in assessing environmental effects of transportation systems on water quality.
