Treatment of contaminated stormwater varies with the type and degree of contamination found to be present. As a general guide to contaminated stormwater treatment, the numerous books and reports describing treatment processes and specific contaminant handling should be referenced. Books describing unit operations and processes that may be applicable in the handling of specific types of pollutants in industrial wastewater might be especially helpful. Hence, this section will not attempt to reiterate the wealth of information contained in the volumes of this handbook, but rather to describe basic processes and concepts applicable to contaminated stormwater treatment.
