The main goal of this study was to evaluate the impacts of a middle-sized Finnish urban area on the quality of sediments in an adjacent boreal lake. We investigated the sources and distribution of organic pollutants (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)) in the sediments from urban stormwater traps and from Lake(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the sources, transport and distribution of hydrophobic organic contaminants produced in an urban area. Passive sampling devices (PSDs) were employed in the storm-water drainage of the city of Lahti, in an adjacent boreal lake (Vesijärvi) and along its shore. Samples were analysed for 16 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons(More)
