It's common to find petroleum substances, especially polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, in the sewer or haw waters of the urban environment. These polluted waters flows directly to the urban sewer system in the form of a wastewater. Examination of such events has been carried out in the city of Slupsk, the Pomorskie Voivodeship. In order to limit the polluted surface and rain water flow to the salmon river, twelve oil separators has been deployed around the city. First phase consisted of four such deployments. The separators were designed to filter the rain and surface waters. The following efficiency evaluation showed that according to polish law, in any case the PAH limits has not been reached. Evaluation of easily downward suspension samples also showed trace amounts of the substances. In 40 evaluation series (4 separators x 10 series) the limit was exceeded in 13 cases. The average efficiency of the separators was calculated to be 67.5%. For the four previously described separators the efficiency was as follows: Separator 5 and 17 – 80%, Separator 13 – 70%, Separator 14 – 40%.
