Stormwater Management to Address Highway Runoff Toxicity Due to 6PPD-Quinone from Tire Rubber

This research aims to equip DOTs with a targeted approach for effectively managing 6PPD-q in highway runoff by (1) developing methods/criteria for identifying locations that need focused treatment, (2) developing a better understanding of the fate and transport of 6PPD and 6PPD-q, (3) developing cost-effective design guidance for stormwater treatment and management techniques with a focus on reducing the effects of 6PPD-q on receiving waters, and (4) evaluating the degree of 6PPD-q release from pavement products made from recycled tire materials. This research will also assist with providing regulatory agencies with a better understanding of DOT management options including the feasibility, limitations, and effectiveness of treatment methods.
