The four live Webinars representing six Continuing Education Hours plus online exercises and quizzes will be held March 26 through March 29 from noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time on each day. Webinars will be recorded for later viewing if you miss a session. This program provides detailed instruction on how to implement pervious concrete pavements as a solution to reducing stormwater runoff from building sites and other paved areas. Attendees will learn the details of pervious concrete pavement systems, engineering properties and construction techniques.

Reduce Stormwater Runoff Pervious Concrete is a performance engineered concrete with a void system that allows rainwater to percolate through it. When pervious concrete is used for parking areas, streets, plazas and walkways it minimizes stormwater runoff to surrounding streams and lakes and allows for natural filtration to recharge local groundwater supplies. Although pervious concrete has been used in some areas for decades, recent interest in green building and recognition of pervious pavements by the U.S. EPA as a best practice for stormwater management has heightened interest in its use throughout North America.

Its use supports national initiatives such as Cool Communities and Low Impact Development and provides a potential for credit in the LEED® rating system for sustainable building construction. Pervious concrete reduces the need for expensive stormwater drainage and wet pond retention systems, thereby allowing for more economical and beneficial land use.

Topics include: · Economic and Environmental Benefits · Hydrological and Structural Design · Specifications, Mix Design and Test Methods · Construction Techniques · Contractor Certification · Durability and Maintenance · Applications and Case Studies

This course is intended for civil engineers, architects, landscape architects, public works officials and others who design pavements and stormwater management systems. Contractors, product suppliers and land developers will also benefit from this seminar.
