Temporal evolution of microbiological, physical, and chemical quality of stormwater runoff from a stormwater drain in an urban residential area in Calgary, Canada, was investigated from May to September, 2006 and 2007. Investigating event mean concentrations and their correlations with rainfall characteristics revealed that intensive rainfall events produced highly polluted stormwater runoff when pollutant source limitation did not occur. Inconsistent event-based correlations between total… CONTINUE READING
