Summary

This dataset contains results for samples collected at stormwater basins across the United States to assess the potential contaminant pathways of these basins to surface water and groundwater. Sample sites were in stormwater conveyance infrastructure that discharged mixed stormwater runoff from buildings, parking lots, roads, and other infrastructure in residential, commercial, and industrial landscapes prior to surface-water discharge or groundwater infiltration. Stormwater basins draining various types of urban environments, and of various drainage areas, were selected and sampled during storm events. The associated report (Masoner and others, 2019) can be found at https://doi.org/10.1021/acs.est.9b02867. A total of 438 organic compounds [...]

Purpose

This data was collected to assess various types of urban stormwater management basins across the United States. Composite samples were collected during storm events and analyzed for inorganic and organic compounds. This research strives to lay the groundwork for future studies on environmental exposures and toxicity resulting from stormwater run-off.
