Abstract Heavy metal content of infiltration inlet sediment, arterial road dust, housing area road dust and infiltration area soil was investigated. Heavy metals content in infiltration inlet sediment was almost equal to relevant survey results of foreign countries. Based on evaluation results of pollution by urban traffic activities with use of enrichment factor, traffic activities were pointed out as main pollution source of Pb, Zn, Cu, Cd, Cr and Ni. Cluster analysis of heavy metal composition was conducted for grouping above dusts and soils. Based on results of principal component analysis, main component 1 as urban traffic pollution and main component 2 as other non-artificial pollution were grasped. Through above analysis, pollution characteristics was clarified.
