Title: Pollution from urban land use in the Grand and Saugeen Watersheds
Author: O'Neill, J. E.
Abstract: Under the IJC-PLUARG program, seven urban study areas in the Grand River and Saugeen River pilot watersheds were studied between 1974 and 1977 to examine a wide variety of potential sources of pollution to the boundary waters of the Great Lakes., namely: Kitchener - Waterloo - Cambridge, Schneider Creek, Montgomery Creek, Guelph, New Hamburg, Durham and Allan Park. This technical report is concerned with the following purposes: 1) the determination of the pollutants derived from urban areas, 2) the estimation of the magnitude of the pollutant contributions from urban areas in terms of unit-area loadings, 3) the determination of the sources of pollutants within urban areas and the evaluation of their relative significance, 4) the investigation of the nature of pollutant transport from urban areas.
