Assessment of Pollutant Loadings and Concentrations in Highway Stormwater

This report presents the final form of the Washington State highway runoff pollutant loading model, incorporating data from the five years of study. It also features a probabilistic analysis of concentration and loading data designed to express the chance of exceeding specific values in a given case. Other topics include further assessment of the toxicity of highway runoff and its causes and mitigation.
