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={Kelly A. Collins and William F. Hunt and Jon Michael 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…

Permeable Pavement Performance over 3 Years of Monitoring

A 200 m2 permeable pavement test site was installed along Birkdale Road on Auckland's North Shore. Data from the permeable pavement section and an adjacent conventional asphalt section were collected

Comparing the surface infiltration rates of permeable pavement and conventional asphalt pavement

Permeable pavements have been known for allowing infiltration of water, which expedites the removal of surface runoff. Thus, the use of permeable pavements is increasingly becoming popular among road

Using swales to pre-treat stormwater runoff and prolong the effective life of permeable pavement systems

Permeable pavements have been shown to be effective stormwater treatment devices that can greatly reduce surface runoff and significantly improve the quality of stormwater runoff in urban areas.

Permeable Pavement Design and Construction: What Have We Learned Recently?

Permeable pavements have been gaining popularity throughout North America. Permeable pavements typically consist of pervious concrete, porous asphalt, or permeable interlocking concrete block paving

Hydrological and stormwater quality performance of the pervious pavements

Pervious pavements have been making significant contributions to the urban stormwater management for many years. In this paper, the hydrological quantity and stormwater quality performance of various

A Critical Review of Permeable Asphalt Behavior and Performance to Guide Application to Arterial Streets in Cold Climates

The purpose of this review paper is to summarize the literature on the behavior and performance of permeable asphalt (PA), examine the feasibility of applying PA to arterial streets in cold climates,

A concrete reactive barrier for acid mine drainage treatment

Pervious concrete was investigated for potential use as a permeable reactive barrier (PRB) for treatment of acid mine drainage (AMD). Pervious concrete mixtures of various water/cement ratios (0·50,

A Chemical Analysis of Acid Mine Drainage using Pervious Concrete as a Filtering Medium

The present report discussed the chemical analysis of acid mine drainage, when pervious concrete is used as a treatment medium of AMD. Acid mine drainage (AMD) is an acidic water that outflows from



Evaluation of Four Permeable Pavement Sites in Eastern North Carolina for Runoff Reduction and Water Quality Impacts

Four permeable pavement applications in North Carolina’s Coastal Plain were constructed and monitored to determine their effectiveness of reducing runoff quantity and improving water quality. Sites

Field Survey of Permeable Pavement Surface Infiltration Rates

The surface infiltration rates of 40 permeable pavement sites were tested in North Carolina, Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware. Two surface infiltration tests pre- and postmaintenance were performed

The role of urban surfaces (permeable pavements) in regulating drainage and evaporation: development of a laboratory simulation experiment

Permeable pavements and similar stormwater control devices have not been exploited in the UK, in part because their adoption has been hindered by a lack of detailed knowledge of their hydrological
