NATIONAL HIGHWAY RUNOFF WATER-QUALITY DATA
AND METHODOLOGY SYNTHESIS

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) are currently cooperating in a national project to evaluate FHWA's guidelines for highway-runoff quality. The FHWA wants to determine if current guidelines for highway runoff quality are up-to-date and technically supportable, or if additional information is needed to update the guidelines. The FHWA wants a catalog of existing studies and available data. Information collected will be used to determine if available data are sufficient to characterize pollutant loadings and impacts attributable to highway stormwater runoff around the country. This web page will provide a catalog of reports, and other information as it becomes available.
