Surface runoff represents one of the major mechanism connecting sources, transport, deposition and storage of the particle matter in urban sediment cascade. The urban surface deposited sediment represents a medium for the transport and nonpoint source of pollution in cities. The study is aimed to characterize the role of surface stormwater runoff in accumulation of the contemporary surface deposited sediments in the urban environment taking to account the seasonal factor. The study was conducted on the example of residential area of Ekaterinburg, Russia. The role of the surface stormwater runoff in the formation of the urban surface deposited sediments was discussed. The snow and dirt mixture accumulates surface runoff and pollutants in it during the winter season in an urban area. A large supply of water accumulated in the snow cover during the cold period contributes to the formation of large volumes of snow-mud mixture during spring. The active snowmelt in the spring leads to the formation of snow-dirt sludge and transfer of the sedimentary material.
