A series of projects conducted from 1978 through 1983 in Bellevue, Washington, to investigate Bellevue's urban runoff sources, effects, and potential controls. This report presents results of the project conducted by the City of Bellevue that was sponsored by the Storm and Combined Sewer Section of the U.S. EPA. The project lasted from 1980 to 1983 and was mostly concerned with urban runoff characterization and control by street and sewerage cleaning. This project completely monitored more than 300 urban runoff events in two residential areas during the project period. Flow-weighted composite samples were analyzed for a core list of important constituents. Complete flow monitoring results allowed detailed descriptions of urban runoff quality and quantity, and allowed estimates to be made concerning the contributions of flows and pollutants from different source areas. Street surface and sewerage particulates were also collected and analyzed to determine the effectiveness of street and sewerage cleaning.
