Hydrologic and Water Quality Evaluation of Four Permeable Pavements in North Carolina, USA

  title={Hydrologic and Water Quality Evaluation of Four Permeable Pavements in North Carolina, USA},
  author={K. Collins and W. Hunt and J. Hathaway},
A permeable pavement parking lot in eastern North Carolina consisting of four types of permeable pavement and standard asphalt was monitored from June 2006 to J uly 2007 for hydrologic differences in pavement surface runoff volumes, total outflow volumes, peak flow rates, and time to peak, and from January 2007 to July 2007 for water quality concentrations. The four permeable sections were pervious concrete (PC), two types of permeable interlocking concrete pavement (PICP) with small-sized… Expand
