The Fraser River Water Quality Work Group (1979) estimated that 50 percent of the total volume of all discharges to the Fraser River estuary study area was from stormwater. Despite this, few comparative studies have been undertaken to investigate the impact of stormwater on the Fraser River estuary in the Vancouver area. In 1982-1983, the Waste Management Branch, Region 2 (Ministry of Environment) conducted a stormwater monitoring study of an active light industrial drainage basin on Norland Avenue in Burnaby. This study followed a similar 1981 monitoring program of a south Vancouver residential drainage basin. This report presents the results of the 1982-1983 study.
