Pervious concrete is a solution for managing storm water runoff, mitigating/minimizing tree root intrusion and providing a sustainable hardscaping tool. Pervious concrete pavement is ideal for parking areas, driveways, sidewalks, patios and other flatwork. The presentation will focus on the critical elements in designing & specifying pervious concrete. The presenter will cover basic structural & hydrological design and also discuss section detailing, decorative considerations, and measurement & verification issues.
