The main objective of this study was to outline sampling procedures to be used so as to best characterize pollutants in stormwater runoff, from two types of watersheds: (1) an urban watershed and (2) a combined semiurban and rural watershed; hereinafter denoted as the semi-urban/rural watershed. Other objectives were to characterize and quantify the pollution in stormwater runoff, compare the runoff from the two watersheds, examine effects of first flushing, and measure the effects of varying sampling frequency of the mass emission pollutograph.
