The report gives results of a program to determine if surface runoff from iron and steel mills is an environmental problem. It includes a compilation of data available before this program, information gathered from plant tours, and results of a field survey at two fully integrated mills on tidal rivers. Data collected at the two sites indicate that coal/coke storage piles and handling areas have the highest potential for contaminating stormwater. The data also indicate that total suspended solids (TSS) runoff concentrations are typical of urban runoff concentrations, while total dissolved solids (TDS) values are about 1 to 2 times the typical urban runoff concentrations. From plant tours it was found out that current stormwater controls in the steel industry are limited. It was concluded that, except for runoff from coal/coke storage areas, stormwater runoff is not a problem when compared to point source control.
