Increasing pressure to mitigate pollution from urban stormwater and road run-off is generating interest in vegetative treatment systems. The treatment performance of these systems depends on the characteristics of the pollutants entering them--for example, whether metals are dissolved or particle bound, and the particle size. This study sought to provide information on the characteristics of sediment derived specifically from road-use activities. A length of roadside gutter was vacuumed… CONTINUE READING
