PAH transport by urban runoff from an industrial city / by J. Marsalek. : En13-5/89-169E-PDF

"Urban runoff from an industrial city was found to produce annual PAH loadings comparable to those from point sources. More than 95% of these loadings were transported by sediments in runoff. Variations of PAH levels in runoff were explained by variations of sediment concentrations in runoff and by variations in PAH levels in sediment. The annual load of PAHs in runoff from the study area was estimated at 75 kg per year and about one third of this quantity was contributed by atmospheric deposition. A great degree of similarity among PAH profiles in urban runoff, river sediment and caged mussels was found and confirmed the PAH pathways from urban anthropogenic sources via runoff to the receiving waters"--Abstract.
