Characterization of Stormwater Runoff from Highways.
This chapter provides an overview of ongoing research towards improving the understanding of water quality characteristics of highway stormwater runoff. A review of source contributors, some important water quality constituents, and the requirements of a data collection program is provided. The methodology involved and the comprehensive data base employed in the single-site analyses portion of this work is outlined. Results from an investigation into the presence of the first flush phenomenon, and the identification of surrogate water quality parameters is also included.
