By: Lopes, Thomas JContributor(s): Dionne, Shannon GPublication details: Rapid City, SD U.S. Department of the Interior, [1998?]; U.S. Geological Survey, ; U.S. Department of Transportation, ; Federal Highway Administration, ; Open-file report 98-409, Description: 1 CD 67 s. CDSubject(s): USA | Run off | | Water | Pollution | Quality | Organic | Pollutant | Sampling | 15 | 37Online resources: Publikation/Publication Bibl.nr: VTI 2003.0780Location: Abstract: Many studies have been conducted since 1970 to characterize concentrations of semivolatile organic compounds (SVOCs) in highway runoff and urban stormwater. To a lesser extent, studies also have characterized concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), estimated loads ofSVOCs, and assessed potential impacts of these contaminants on receiving streams. This review evaluates the quality of existing data on SVOCs and VOCs in highway runoff and urban storm water and summarizes significant findings. Studies related to highways are emphasized when possible. The review included 44 articles and reports that focused primarily on SVOCs and VOCs. Only 17 of these publications are related to highways, and 5 of these 17 are themselves review papers. SVOCs in urban stormwater and sediments during the late 1970's to mid-1980's were the subject of most studies.
