Washington, DC, Area Engineers Learn About Pervious Concrete

NRMCA Senior Director, Local Paving, Phil Kresge recently spoke at the Washington Area Council of Engineering Laboratories (WACEL) luncheon meeting in Tysons Corner, VA, on Pervious Concrete as a Stormwater Management System with a special focus on specification and field testing. There is great interest in pervious concrete in the greater Washington area, in part due to newly revised stormwater regulations and also because of the impact that the area has on the Chesapeake Bay, Kresge said. The opportunity to present was facilitated by Hessam Nabavi from the Northern Virginia Advisory Council of the Virginia Ready-Mixed Concrete Association (VRMCA).

Established in 1974, WACEL consists of engineering laboratories and inspection agencies. WACEL’s mission is to develop and implement programs to promote and improve quality among firms, organizations and individuals involved in construction observation, testing and special inspections. WACEL certification is required by several counties in Virginia and Maryland, as well as by the Washington Metropolitan Airports Authority, Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) and the Naval Engineering Facilities Command (NAVFAC) Chesapeake Division.
