288 reported that suspended sediment concentration discharges from construction activities into streams was as high as 355 mg L-1 (355 ppm), with high concentrations persisting 100 m (328 ft) downstream negatively impacting macroinvertebrate populations. When eroded sediment is transported from its site of origin to nearby surface waters it also carries fertilizers, pesticides, fuels, and other contaminants and substances commonly spilled at construction sites that readily attach to soil… CONTINUE READING
