Porous asphalt pavement is a stormwater management solution that reduces stormwater runoff, improves water quality, and reduces the footprint for stormwater management systems. This 1-hour presentation discusses the need for porous pavement, the design of the stormwater management system, the system components and materials, and the construction of porous asphalt pavement to maximize the benefits. Based on the best management practices promulgated by the Department of Environmental Protection, specifications for open-graded asphalt pavement, and lessons learned from actual construction projects across the United States, the presentation illustrates the best practices to ensure a long-lasting, effective stormwater management system.

Key Takeaways:

  • Why porous asphalt pavements are needed
  • How they reduce stormwater runoff and improve water quality
  • Best practices for design and construction, and
  • Lessons learned to maximize the benefits of a well-maintained porous asphalt system for stormwater management
