The research summarized here was conducted to identify and control stormwater toxicants, especially those adversely affecting groundwater. The purpose was to first review groundwater contamination literature as it related to stormwater. Potential problem pollutants were identified based on mobility through the vadose zone above groundwater, abundance in stormwater, and treatability before discharge. This information was used with earlier research results to identify possible sources of these pollutants. Recommendations are made for stormwater infiltration guidelines and for monitoring to evaluate stormwater for its potential to contaminate groundwater.
