Design Considerations Common To All Permeable Pavements
Impervious cover in watersheds without controls result in increased stormwater runoff and decreased groundwater recharge in response to rainfall events. This increased runoff can be the...

Porous Asphalt and Permeable Friction Course Overlays
Porous asphalt typically consists of conventional warm mix asphalt (WMA) or hot mix asphalt (HMA) with significantly reduced fines resulting in an open-graded mixture that allows water...

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....

Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavement (PICP)
Permeable interlocking concrete pavement (PICP) consists of (impervious) manufactured concrete units that form permeable voids and joints, when assembled into a laying pattern. The openings...

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...

Achieving Success and Avoiding Failures with Permeable Pavements
This chapter provides experienced-based recommendations on how to achieve success with permeable pavements. This information is based on an informational survey completed by designers,...
