Modeling trace organic contaminants in commercial and high-density residential urban stormwater runoff
Urbanization can dramatically alter stormwater, both the quantity and quality, by engendering larger peak flows and through the introduction of contaminants into stormwater runoff. This study builds upon previous research that developed relationships between a suite of nonpoint source contaminants, known as trace organic contaminants (TOrCs), and hydrologic measurements for a series of storms in Madison, WI, by creating statistical and deterministic models. Stormwater runoff from both a commercial site and a high-density residential site was characterized for TOrCs in a previous study. Correlations ...
