CHARACTERIZATION OF URBAN-SOURCE FLOATABLES
Abstract:This paper is intended as a reference document to present the physical characteristics of floatables and other materials in beach wash-ups, in discharges from storm- and combined-sewer systems, and on urban streets and sidewalks. The information presented in the paper may be useful to develop an understanding of the transport of material from urban streets through the sewer system and ultimately into receiving waters and onto shorelines and beaches. Furthermore, regulatory requirements regarding control of floatables can be ambiguous, and floatables-control alternatives can depend upon the characteristics of the targeted and incidental material.
