Redevelopment of Aggregate and Rock Quarries: No Longer Just a Hole in the Ground
Redevelopment of former sand and gravel (aggregate) and rock quarries can be challenging, often requiring developers, quarry operators, planners, and engineers to work in tandem. As urban and suburban...

Pervious Concrete
Pervious concrete consists of a hydraulic cementitious binding system combined with an open-graded aggregate to produce a rigid pavement with typically 15% to 25% interconnected void space....

Alternative Technologies
In recent years, new permeable pavement product variations have entered the market. This chapter describes general characteristics for several emerging products. The following types of...

Grid Pavement
Open grid pavements consist of concrete or plastic units with large surface openings filled with a permeable joint material, typically small aggregate (ASTM No. 8 or No. 89), sand, or...
