Urban stormwater contains substantial amounts of heavy metals (Zn, Cu, Pb) and suspended solids (TSS). Untreated, these contaminants are recognized as the main detriment to urban waterways. To quantify the sources of these pollutants in urban catchments and resulting discharges to specific points along waterways, the MEDUSA (Modelled Estimates of Discharges for Urban Stormwater Assessments) modelling framework was developed.

Predicting Event-Based Sediment and Heavy Metal Loads in Untreated Urban Runoff from Impermeable Surfaces Charters, Frances J.; Cochrane, Thomas A.; O'Sullivan, Aisling D. (2020)Understanding the amount of pollutants contributed by impermeable urban surfaces during rain events is necessary for developing effective stormwater management. A process-based pollutant load model, named Modelled Estimates ...
Murphy, L.U.; O'Sullivan, A.; Cochrane, T.A. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2014)Atmospheric deposition is increasingly being recognised as a significant source of total suspended solids (TSS) and heavy metals in urban runoff. However, many uncertainties and challenges remain with measuring and managing ...
Stormwater Contaminant Load Monitoring (2016) and Modelling of the Heathcote Catchment and Six Representative Subcatchments O'Sullivan AD; Cochrane TA; Charters F (University of Canterbury, 2017)Adverse effects from sediment and heavy metals have been observed in the Heathcote catchment, which is diverse in its land use activities. Stormwater management improvements are planned for the catchment through the Heathcote ...
