Abstract

This is a brief investigation of stormwater runoff from a large shopping center located in Brevard County, Florida. Merritt Square Shopping Center has a parking area for 4,700 automobiles and is located on the shore of Newfound Harbor which is classified as recreation waters (Class III). A literature survey of runoff studies in other areas has been made for both "state of the art" and evaluation of findings. Water samples were initially collected from five locations. Review of the analysis of these samples indicated that while color and turbidity appeared to decrease linearly with time, organic and inorganic concentrations did not. During a later storm a second series of samples was taken from a single location at two minute intervals. In the analysis of these samples the organic and inorganic carbon concentrations decreased with time from the beginning of the storm. However, an upturn in concentration in the final stages of runoff may be noticed.
