Calculation of mass transport of pollutants via storm water discharge

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The National Swedish Environmental Protection Board recommends a standard value method for calculation of mass transport of pollutants via storm water sewer systems. In this paper mass transport calculations based on this method are compared with actual measurements. Measurements during one and a half years in the city of Lund show high amounts of leakage and drainage into the storm water sewer system. The paper shows that the pollution transport during base flow conditions is significant.
