SERDP Project ER-2428, 1840 pp, 2018

To develop, test, and assess the effectiveness of a comprehensive set of lab, field, and modeling approaches in characterizing the role of urban stormwater in contamination of sediments and recontamination of remediated sites, a field study was conducted at Paleta Creek, an urban watershed partially encompassing Naval Base San Diego and draining to San Diego Bay. Stormwater discharges at a secondary site at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard were also studied to identify whether the methods were applicable and whether general characteristics noted at Paleta Creek were reproduced at an additional site. This report is organized by the tools and measurements as related to the understanding gained during their use. https://www.serdp-estcp.org/content/download/47712/454846/file/ER-2428%20Final%20Report.pdf
