This report presents the final results and conclusions from an EPA-sponsored demonstration study of the water quality and biological effects of urban runoff on Coyote Creek, near San Jose, California. Various field procedures were used during the project to evaluate water, sediment, and biological changes in the creek as it passed through the urban area. The report describes the characteristics and sources of urban pollutants which affect the creek, and the effects and potential controls for urban runoff.
