Storm water management is a key component of urban infrastructure design. Numerous agencies throughout the United States and Canada include permeable pavements as a key component of best management practices for stormwater management.

If properly designed and constructed, permeable pavements can help rainwater infiltrate soil, decrease urban heating, replenish groundwater and reduce overall storm water runoff. The construction of permeable pavement systems that can accommodate surface water runoff is gaining increasing attention through the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program.

This webinar provides background on the key features of permeable asphalt, concrete and interlocking concrete block pavements along with guidance, design tools and methodologies to assist in designing pavements to accommodate hydrological and structural pavement design for municipal and parking area permeable pavements and compare equivalent structural designs. The learning objectives for this webinar include:

  • Understand the key input parameters for the successful design of permeable asphalt, concrete and interlocking concrete block pavements.
  • Ability to design a permeable pavement for both structural and hydrologic capacity.
  • Recognize good maintenance practices for permeable pavements
  • Utilize previously impervious infrastructure to reduce the impact of peak stormwater runoff and improve stormwater quality.

Instructor: David Hein is a consulting Civil Engineer with over 35 years of experience in the design, evaluation and management of pavement infrastructure.
