Copper and Zinc in Urban Runoff: Phase 1 – Potential Pollutant Sources and Release Rates
Acrobat PDF format (Number of pages: 121) (Publication Size: 5811KB)
|Description||To support pollutant source control efforts, the loading of copper and zinc in the built environment will be estimated for an urban area in western Washington in a two-phased project. During Phase 1 of the study, the potential loading from various sources of copper and zinc are calculated.
On average, an estimated 800 pounds of copper and 5,900 pounds of zinc are released each year from the materials reviewed in the study area in Thurston County. The main sources of copper and zinc are vehicle wear and building materials.
It is recommended that stormwater monitoring data be collected to verify the quantity of copper and zinc released from parking lots, building roofing and siding materials, streetlights, and roof gutters.
