A mechanistic model was developed to predict the highway runoff pollutographs during precipitation events. Pollutants were assumed to be in two phases, attached to the pavement surface and mobile in the runoff water. Detachment and reattachment of contaminants were considered as rate-limited processes and the detachment rate was assumed to be a function of flow velocity by a power expression. The build-up of pollutants on the surface during the dry period between the storm events was also… CONTINUE READING
