    Reviews the groundwater contamination literature as it relates to stormwater. Potential problem pollutants were ident ified, based on their mobility through the unsaturated soil zone above groundwater, their abundance in stormwater, and their treatability before discharge. • Managing stormwater as an asset • Purpose: to explore the potential for increasing local water supplies and reducing surface pollution by capturing stormwater runoff for infiltration and groundwater recharge • Research questions: – Impact on groundwater quality and quantity – Accessibility of recharged water – Cost effectivenessFile Size: 1MB.

    @article{osti_, title = {Groundwater contamination: Sources, control, and preventive measures}, author = {Rail, C D}, abstractNote = {This book is designed to provide a comprehensive, concise discussion and review of the presently known sources of groundwater contamination and its many complex interactions, including managerial and political implications. The risk of contamination of groundwater may be reduced by pretreatment of storm water. A discussion of limitations and guidance for infiltration practices is contained in, Potential Groundwater Contamination from Intentional and Non-Intentional Storm water Infiltration, Report No. EPA//R/, USEPA ().

Vol. 15, No. 1. pp. In comparison with rivers or streams, ground water tends to move very slowly and with very little turbulence. Therefore, once a contaminant reaches the ground water, little dilution or dispersion normally occurs. Instead, the contaminant forms a concentrated plume that can flow along the same path as the ground water. Among the factors that determine the size, form, and rate of movement of the Phone: ()

EPA//R/ May POTENTIAL GROUNDWATER CONTAMINATION FROM INTENTIONAL AND NONINTENTIONAL STORMWATER INFILTRATION by Robert Pitt, Shirley Clark, and Keith Parmer Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering University of Alabama at Birmingham Birmingham, Alabama Cooperative Agreement No.

CR Project Officer Richard Field, Chief Storm and Combined Sewer Pollution Control. Fungicides and nematocides must be mobile to reach the target pest, and hence, they generally have the highest groundwater contamination potential.

Pesticide leaching depends on patterns of use, soil texture, total organic carbon content of the soil, pesticide per- sistence, and depth to the water table. Observed heavy metal groundwater contamination associated with stormwater infiltration.

In dry recharge wells in Arizona, manganese was the only metal that was mobile in the vadose zone and was the only metal to show up in the groundwater at elevated concentrations (Wilson et al., ).Cited by: Stormwater Infiltration is the first book to explain the principles of natural science on which infiltration is based, how to apply infiltration to any region of the country, and what kinds of results can be expected.

Potential Groundwater Contamination from Intentional and Nonintentional Stormwater Infiltration. Groundwater. Prior to urbanization groundwater is recharged by rainfall-runoff and snowmelt infiltrating through pervious surfaces including grasslands and woods.

This infiltrating water is relatively. Recommendations to Reduce Groundwater Contamination Potential when using Infiltration Controls in Urban Areas • Combined sewer overflows should be diverted from infiltration devices because of poor water quality.

• Snowmelt runoff should be diverted from infiltration devices because of high concentrations of Size: 8MB. Prior to urbanization, ground water recharge resulted from infiltration of precipitation through pervious surfaces, including grasslands and woods.

This infiltration water was relatively uncontaminated. With urbanization, the permeable soil surface area through which recharge by infiltration could occur was reduced. This resulted in much less ground water recharge and greatly.

Agency, EPA//SR/ PBAS, Storm and Combined Sewer Program, Cincinnati, OH, p Cited by: The fate of contaminants infiltrated from stormwater runoff and the potential for groundwater contamination was investigated by reviewing literature published in peer-reviewed scientific and engineering journals.

Stormwater matters to ground water While stormwater runoff is the natural result of a precipitation event, stormwater in urbanized watersheds greatly influences ground and surface water quality and quantity—not to mention the health of aquatic r it is rainwater or snowmelt, water has to go Size: 3MB.

Groundwater contamination potential from stormwater infiltration practices The potential effects of stormwater on groundwater quality was estimated based on the likely presence of problem constituents in the stormwater, their mobility through soils, the type of treatment received before infiltration, and the infiltration method used Cited by: Warning: The Construction Stormwater General permit prohibits permittees from constructing infiltration systems where infiltrating stormwater may mobilize high levels of contaminants in soil or groundwater.

Permittees must either complete the checklist (File:Contamination screening checklist for stormwater or File:Contamination screening checklist for stormwater infiltration.

Stormwater runoff infiltration brings about some concerns regarding its potential impact on both soil and groundwater quality; besides, the fate of contaminants in source-control devices somewhat.

Literature review supported groundwater contamination by stormwater was rare in residential areas (except for chloride), but was more common in commercial and industrial areas Pitt and others, 28 Potential groundwater contamination from intentional and nonintentional stormwater infiltration.

Groundwater Contamination from Stormwater Infiltration examines topics such as urban runoff, constituents of concern, treatment, combined sewage characteristics, relative contributions of urban runoff flow phase, salts and dissolved minerals, treatment before discharge, outfall pretreatment, and local pretreatment.

Prior to urbanization, groundwater recharge resulted from infiltration of precipitation through pervious surfaces, including grasslands and woods. This infiltrating water was relatively uncontaminated.

This phenomenon is called interaquifer leakage. Thus, properly identifying and protecting the areas affected by well pumping is important to maintain ground water quality. Generally, the greater the distance between a source of contamination and a.

Groundwater risk is evaluated based on three factors: chemical mobility, abundance of the chemical in stormwater runoff, and the likelihood of the chemical being attenuated through sedimentation practices, with the most limiting of these.Figure Presence and concentration of (a) chloride, (b) nitrate and (c) total phosphorus at the three study sites in the Twin Cities Metro Area, with the red line showing the U.S.
