This project tested the hypothesis that nonpoint source loading factors in the downtown Washington, D.C., Central Business District (CBD) would be higher than those in a suburban CBD. Two Washington, D.C., CBD test watersheds were sampled, and their loading characteristics were compared with results of a study done previously in a suburb in Arlington County, VA. The report concludes by recommending nonpoint pollution loading factors for planning studies of suburban and downtown CBD's.
