The objective of this paper was to identify possible specific contamination of stormwater biosolids, with a special emphasis on pollution associated with transportation of municipal solid wastes to the waste utilization plant. The study area for sampling includes two selected points of separate stormwater collection system in Cracow. Samples of stormwater and biosolids were collected during spring-summer-autumn season addressed towards rainy days to check the scope of the problem The results led to conclusion, whether the waste utilization plant impacts the stormwater quality, compared to the high-traffic road. The largest pollutants found in stormwater near the plant were nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus) however general content of organic matter in biosolids collected in separated stormwater system also confirmed adverse impact of solid waste transportation on stormwater sludge (biosolids) quality.
