Experimental Permeable Pavement Parking Lot and Rain Garden Publications

This study measured chloride present in the infiltrate from the three permeable pavement surfaces and in runoff from conventional asphalt immediately following winter salt application and for the remainder of the year.  It compares the attenuation of chloride by the three permeable pavement materials and conventional asphalt.

This study evaluates surface infiltration rates of the three permeable pavement surfaces during the first three years of use without maintenance.  The paper also evaluates the ASTM method (ASTM C1701C) for conducting surface infiltration tests on permeable pavement.

This study used time domain reflectometers (TDRs) to measure spatial infiltration and assess clogging dynamics of permeable pavement systems in Edison, New Jersey, and Louisville, Kentucky.

This study describes initial bench-scale tests to employ time domain reflectometers (TDRs) in the gravel aggregate present beneath permeable pavement.  The paper also includes responses measured by the sensors placed in the permeable pavement storage gallery, rain garden media, and underlying native soils during the first six months after installation.

This document outlines the methods and results of the surface infiltration monitoring of the permeable parking surfaces during the first six months of operation.
