Facilitated transport of metals and bacteria into two infiltration basins in Lyon (France) under changing hydrological conditions: soil column study

H. Larmet, C. Delolme, J.-P. Bedell & M. Neto
The surface of infiltration basins, used to discharge urban stormwater, is an overpolluted matrix containing many reactive compounds liable to facilitate the transfer of heavy metals through the vadose zone to the aquifer. In the two basins studied, the metallic content is high (970 ppm of Zn and 5.23 ppm of Cd) and the organic matter and the bacteria are very abundant (5.56E+09 to 1.23E+10 bacteria/g of dry soil), by opposition to those of the...
