Geomorphic controls on contaminant distribution along an ephemeral stream


This study presents a detailed analysis of the distribution of one contaminant along an ephemeral stream after 55 years of sediment transport, deposition, and exchange by flash floods. Wastewater containing plutonium was discharged into the Pueblo Canyon watershed from 1945 until 1964, and plutonium concentrations in fluvial deposits vary over 5 orders of magnitude. These variations can be attributed to 3 primary factors : time since contaminant releases, particle-size sorting, and mixing of sediment from different sources
