  Improved Determination Of Pollutants In Highway Runoff  
Heather Brookes   31. May 2010 at 16:09  ·  views: 1802  back to rraf
The aim of the project is to significantly improve the reliability of existing data for pollutant concentrations in highway runoff. The objectives are; a) determine the influence of traffic flows on pollutant concentrations; b) determine whether other factors have a significant influence on pollutant concentrations; c) determine the type of storms and conditions likely to give the worst case for pollutant concentrations at a given location.The research would address the following to determine the pollutant content in highway runoff; a) identify suitable sites across the HA network which have a range of traffic flows and climatic conditions; b) identify and monitor types of storms likely to give worst case pollutant concentrations in highway runoff; c) undertake long term monitoring of a range contaminants; d) establish key highway pollutants under a range of different conditions; d) identify worst case scenarios for pollutant concentrations.
