A study has recently been completed to characterize the pollutant loadings to the Providence River, RI during wet weather conditions. A total of 11 land based sampling stations including three wastewater treatment facilities (WWTF), five tributaries, two WWTF bypasses, and 1 combined sewage overflow (CSO) were monitored for three storms. Wet weather loadings were measured allowing the sources to be ranked for five trace metals and three nutrients.
