AbstractAlkylphenol (AP) and bisphenol A (BPA) contamination of urban runoff has already been established. Potential sources of these contaminants in runoff are endogenous to the urban watershed and are mainly related to traffic and leaching from construction materials. This article summarizes the results of experimental work carried out on a selection of building materials, automotive materials, and consumables, which can be in contact with rain, to assess their potential emission of… 
Colloidal Organic Pollutants in Road Runoff: Sources, Emissions and Effective Treatment Technologies
Thousands of organic substances circulate in our society and are diffusely emitted through traffic, combustion and leaching from constructions and building materials into the urban environment. The
Contamination of Urban Stormwater Pond Sediments: A Study of 259 Legacy and Contemporary Organic Substances
Levels of contamination varied greatly between ponds, influenced heavily by the dilution of urban pollutants and wear particles from other sources of particles such as eroded soil, sand, or natural organic matter.
Field performance of two biofiltration systems treating micropollutants from road runoff.
Micropollutants in Urban Runoff from Traffic Areas: Target and Non-Target Screening on Four Contrasted Sites
Although runoff from trafficked urban areas is recognized as a potentially significant pathway of micropollutants, runoff pollution remains poorly documented, except for relatively few historical
Road Runoff Characterization: Ecotoxicological Assessment Combined with (Non-)Target Screenings of Micropollutants for the Identification of Relevant Toxicants in the Dissolved Phase
Road runoff (RR) is an important vector of micropollutants towards groundwater and soils, threatening the environment and ecosystems. Through combined chemical and biological approaches, the purpose
Quantification and Characterization of Nanoparticulate Zinc in an Urban Watershed
The recent expansion in the use of nanomaterials in consumer and industrial applications has led to a growing concern over their behavior, fate, and impacts in environmental systems. However,
Stochastic Method for Evaluating Removal, Fate and Associated Uncertainties of Micropollutants in a Stormwater Biofilter at an Annual Scale
A stochastic method for evaluating the in situ mass balance of micropollutants in a stormwater biofilter, accounting for inlet and outlet loads and the evolution of pollutant mass in the filter media


Alkylphenolic compounds and bisphenol A contamination within a heavily urbanized area: case study of Paris
This study evaluates the influence of a heavily urbanized area (Paris Metropolitan area) on receiving water contamination by both bisphenol A (BPA) and alkylphenol ethoxylate (APE) biodegradation product to suggest a broad dissemination of 4-nonyl phenol at the scale of the Seine River basin.

The SFA approach presented in this study, using factors that express the emission rate of a specific substance from a specific source, could be applied in urban catchments of various character to estimate fluxes of water contaminants.
Leaching of hazardous substances from additives and admixtures in concrete
The aim of this work was to study the leaching of hazardous substances in additives and admixtures that are commonly contained in concrete. Time-dependent leaching has been analyzed for three types
Sources of Alkylphenols and Alkylphenol Ethoxylates in Wastewater—A Substance Flow Analysis in Stockholm, Sweden
This is a study of the sources of alkylphenol and alkylphenol ethoxylates in wastewater, including the new observation that the main contribution is from textiles. Alkylphenols and alkylphenol
Micropollutants in urban stormwater: occurrence, concentrations, and atmospheric contributions for a wide range of contaminants in three French catchments
The pollutant distributions between dissolved and particulate phases were found to be similar across the three experimental sites, thus suggesting no site dependence, and the contributions of TAF to stormwater contamination for micropollutants were quite low.
