Do freeways create a lot of water run off?

    Yes. Rainstorms breaks loose tons of pollutants on freeways, sending them down the storm drains and into the ocean, according to Michael K. Stenstrom, professor of civil and environmental engineering at UCLA’s Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science.

    Freeways, much like regular surface streets carry the same chemicals and volatile compounds.  When rain water causes runoff, these chemicals make their way into storm drains and water systems, eventually running off to the ocean.  This can lead to things such as sulfur dioxide and rubber based compounds entering a marine ecosystem.
