Wet-weather pollution from commonly-used building materials

S. Clark, M. M. Lalor, R. Pitt & R. Field
Development in sensitive watersheds continues to pose environmental problems for receiving waters. One contributor to the long-term pollution of sensitive waterways is building and construction materials. However, the long-term effect of many building materials on the environment has not been quantified. Prior testing of these materials in the laboratory has indicated that the potential for release (primarily nutrients, lighter hydrocarbons, pesticides, and metals) is significant. Additional testing for metals\342\200\231 release from aged roofing panels also...
