A study was conducted in Bellevue, Washington, to characterize urban runoff and evaluate its control by street and sewerage cleaning. The project reported here spanned the period 1980-1983, and it completely monitored more than 300 urban runoff events in two residential areas during that time. Complete flow monitoring results allowed detailed descriptions of urban runoff quality and quantity. Street surface and sewerage particulates were also collected and analyzed to determine the effectiveness of street and sewerage cleaning.
