Carcinogenic Polynuclear Aromatic Hydrocarbons
. Carcinogenic PAHs were detected in the summer and fall street waste samples.
For example, municipalities discharging to San Francisco Bay cannot meet criteria for copper and mercury in dry weather flows, and lead, copper, zinc, and polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons
in stormwater discharges with combines sewer overflows without expensive additional facilities.
in Research Triangle Park, N.C., says that to date almost all mutagenicity studies of urban air pollutants have focused on compounds known as polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons
(PAHs), which are adsorbed onto airborne particulates.

Coal Tar Pitch Volatiles (CTPV), Coke Oven Emissions (COE), Selected Polynuclear Aromatic Hydrocarbons
Investigations have revealed the presence of numerous hazardous substances on the site, including arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead, and mercury; volatile organic compounds such as tetrachloroethylene; semi-volatile organic compounds, predominantly polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons
such as acenaphthene, benzo(a)pyrene, and fluoranthene, and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).
