Urban stormwater runoff is a complex mixture of pollutants originating from rooftops, pavement wear, tire wear, spills and leaks, organics from birds or animal wastes, and other chemicals. Traditional filtration and infiltration media-based stormwater treatment systems can be improved by using engineered media like activated carbon and biochar. This project explores the current state use of research on the pollutant removal efficiencies of these media and their application on field.
