Heavy metal content of stormwater runoff in St. Petersburg

  • G. T. Frumin
  • A. V. Dikinis


A procedure has been developed for the prediction of heavy metal concentrations in storm rainfall in St. Petersburg on the assumption of equal rates of metal influx with precipitations to the Baltic Sea and St. Petersburg territory. The concentrations of mercury, copper, and zinc in stormwater runoff from different administrative districts of the city have been calculated, and the predicted values have been compared with those determined experimentally.
