Washington State Department of Ecology has been doing a pilot study on the
types of toxins that can enter stormwater systems from different types of
roofing materials.  Copper and Zinc are studied pretty carefully, since we
know that the metals contribute to greater mortality in the endangered and
economically important fish in the Pacific NW.

There's a link to it from the roofing pollution topic page
