This study was undertaken to determine the character of urban stormwater runoff (UR) residuals as well as handling and disposal techniques. Samples of UR residuals for this study were obtained from a field-assembled sedimentation basin in Racine, WI, swirl and helical bend solids separators in Boston, MA, and an in-line upsized storm conduit in Lansing, MI. The characterization study included analyses for nine metals, eight pesticidies and PCB's, solids, nutrients and organics. The treatability study included bench scale sedimentation tests, centrifugation tests, lime stabilization tests and capillary suction time tests.
