Pollutants in highway runoff

B. Crabtree, F. Moy & M. Whitehead
In response to rainfall, highway surface runoff discharges may contain pollutants that have accumulated on the carriageway, particularly following periods of dry weather. In the UK the Highways Agency, in association with the Environment Agency, commissioned a 5-year study in 1997 to collect data to improve the understanding of contaminants in highway runoff and the treatment efficiency of drainage systems. The study involved the instrumentation and monitoring of non-urban highway surface water drainage and the...
