The water quality of urban drainage ditches in lowlands in the Rhine-Meuse delta was analysed with Principal Component Analysis (PCA) during a dry period and a rain storm, and related to seepage of polluted river water and effective impervious area (EIA). This was done in order to test the hypothesis that seepage of river water and storm water runoff from impervious areas strongly determine the water quality of urban drainage systems along large lowland rivers. Our analysis revealed that upward… CONTINUE READING
