Pervious pavements are important systems used for source control in Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS), which allow water to infiltrate into hard surfaces and then slowly release it either to a drainage outlet or into the ground. They also remove low levels of pollution from the water by filtration and also by biodegradation of hydrocarbons, which are adsorbed to materials within the construction. Following a historical overview of research in this area, this paper describes an experiment that… Expand
