Permeable Pavement

North Carolina recently provided many incentives for the use of permeable pavement, thereby ensuring widespread and frequent application across the state. NC State researches the importance of identifying key design and construction elements, while producing long-term annual water budget models for hundreds of permeable pavement design configurations. Field monitoring elements include clay underlined soils, hydraulic loading ratios, and the creation of subsurface storage reservoirs for increased infiltration potential.
