This research was conducted for analyzing the concentration of PPCP and EDC in two stormwater canals. Total nine PPCP were the target analytes, and sampling was carried in the two canals and nearby urban waterway.
Five PPCP were detected but others were not because of the limit of the method of analysis. It was confirmed the stronger the rainfall intensity, the higher the concentration. It seems the phenomenon that the canals had higher concentrations and the first-flush effect occurred in canals was occurred by the urban non-point sources pollution.
