Investigation of contaminant profile in highway stormwater runoff and risk assessment by statistical analysis
Highway stormwater runoff pollution has become a severe risk factor for water bodies nowadays. The conventional risk analysis protocols for directly discharging highway runoff are prone to systematic and judgmental errors. Therefore, a numeric and straightforward risk assessment protocol has been developed in this study that minimizes the errors. For this study, three highway segments were selected in the city of Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Event mean concentrations have been used as baseline numeric values for calculating the risk of discharging highway stormwater directly into the water bodies.
