Abstract:

The report describes a demonstration to evaluate the effectiveness of a surface cleaning control practice to remove particles, copper, and zinc from Navy industrial areas in an attempt to mitigate these contaminants in storm water runoff. The evaluation was conducted on multiple Navy piers at Naval Base San Diego NBSD between 2011 and 2013. The project evaluated the effectiveness of a commercially available power-washing and power-vacuuming service that can be found in most metropolitan areas. The demonstration was conducted under Project 469 of the Navys Environmental Sustainability Development to Integration NESDI Program httpwww.nesdi.navy.mil.
