Abstract

The results of several latest and related stormwater research projects that focused on the treatability of stormwater heavy metals were presented. Results indicated that the heavy metals of concern remain strongly bound to the particulates during long exposures at the extreme pH conditions likely to occur in receiving water sediments. The heavy metals also likely remain strongly bound to the particulates in stormwater control device sumps or detention pond sediments where particulate-bound metals are captured. It was found that the heavy metals can likely remain strongly associated with a variety of organic and inorganic media under varying Eh conditions.
