Local EMC values were compared to those obtained in the National Urban Runoff Programs (NURP) (EPA, 1983) and the updated NURP (Smullen and Cave, 2002).
Further, the NURP approach has led to the EPA's and the states' now unreliably reporting to Congress the magnitude of the urban stormwater-caused water quality impairment of the nation's waters.[8] It is important to clearly distinguish between "chemical constituent" and "pollutant" through the appropriate use of aquatic chemistry and aquatic toxicology that is developed on a site-specific basis for stormwater runoff impact on water quality assessment.

Studies conducted in several urban areas (Bellevue, Washington; Champaign, Illinois; Durham, New Hampshire; and Winston-Salem, North Carolina) as part of the Nationwide Urban Runoff Program (NURP)|5~ concluded that street sweeping is generally not effective as a BMP for stormwater quality control, primarily because the sweepers tend to remove the larger, more inert particles, while stormwater runoff removes the small particles more highly associated with pollutants.
In recent studies, termed the Nationwide Urban Runoff Program (NURP) studies, 14 potentially hazardous constituents, including asbestos, were detected.
