Roof runoff contamination: a review on pollutant nature, material leaching and deposition
Roof runoff is generally perceived as a relatively clean source of water and is therefore often discharged or used without any treatment. Available data from literature however show that roof runoff
Emerging Contaminants: Occurrence, Treatment Efficiency and Accumulation Under Varying Flows
Emerging contaminants became a major topic in water treatment when laboratory detection methods for concentrations at a nanogram-scale improved approximately two decades ago. Research on using


Potential Sources of Stormwater Pollutants : Leaching of Metals and Organic Compounds from Roofing Materials
Runoff from paved surfaces in the urban environment is recognised as a major contributing source to deteriorated water quality. In stormwater, both various metals and organic compounds can be prese
Roofing Materials' Contributions to Storm-Water Runoff Pollution
Development in sensitive watersheds continues to pose environmental problems for receiving waters. One contributor to this long-term pollution is building and other construction materials. However,
Trace metals in roof runoff
In this paper we present the concentration of heavy metals (Cd, Cu, Pb, Zn) in runoff from five different roofs (tar felt, pantiles, asbestos cement, Zn sheet, gravel) during two rainfall events. The
