Chapter 3.4. Permeable Pavement Systems

permeability of the underlying soils is less than 0.5 in./hr (although utilization of an infiltration sump may still be feasible). When designing a permeable pavement practice, designers must verify soil permeability by using the on-site soil investigation methods provided in Appendix P. Impermeable soils will require an underdrain.

Permeable paving - Wikipedia

Porous asphalt is produced and placed using the same methods as conventional asphalt concrete; it differs in that fine (small) aggregates are omitted from the asphalt mixture. The remaining large, single-sized aggregate particles leave open voids that give the material its porosity and permeability.

Permeable Pavement: The Pros and Cons You Need to Know ...

Jan 25, 2017· Permeable pavement is a pavement type with a porous surface that is composed of concrete, open pore pavers or asphalt with an underlying stone reservoir. Also considered as green pavement, it allows water to run through it rather than accumulate on it or run off of it. The precipitation and water get stored in the reservoir from where it slowly infiltrates the soil below or is drained via a ...
