    • Abstract:
      Runoff from highways typically picks up a variety of pollutants from the roadway. These pollutants include sediment, trash, residue from petroleum products, and heavy metals. Depending on the highway and its geographic setting, highway runoff can evaporate, infiltrate into the ground, find its way to a storm sewer system that is treated, or flow untreated into a stream or lake. The Water Quality Facilities Investigation research project was undertaken to improve the ODOT’s ability to protect water in Oregon from pollutants carried by highway storm water runoff. This research project consisted of several sequential tasks that built upon one another.
