To find a means of assessing the ecological impact of sediments in highway runoff by a)) determining the fate in watercourses of suspended solids discharged from operational highways b) understanding and quantifying the processes involved in the partitioning, mobilisation, and bio-availability and bio-accumulation of metal and hydrocarbon contaminants in accumulated sediments c) determining the ecological significance of contaminated sediments in watercourses d) devising a procedure for the impact assessment of the ecological effects of sediments on receiving watercourses.
