Abstract:

This report was prepared as the final deliverable for a feasibility study under the National Shipbuilding Research Program NSRP Nl-96-04 Subtask 27, Environmental Studies and Testing. This limited study is not intended to provide a complete evaluation of the use of porous adsorbents for the removal of dissolved heavy metals from storm water, but to determine if commercially available products could be adapted for this task. As defined in the project proposal, the objectives of the project were to 1 evaluate the potential use of a number of adsorbents for the removal of heavy metals from storm water, and 2 determine the feasibility of placing a porous adsorbent within a storm water system as a BMP.
