Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Urban Runoff Quality: Impact and Quality Enhancement Technology
Urban stormwater runoff contaminants affect the principal receiving water uses of: (1) public water supply, (2) recreation, (3) protection of aquatic life forms, (4) agricultural and industrial water supply, and (5) groundwater protection in diverse ways.
