Types of permeable pavements
Types of Permeable Pavements

  • Porous Asphalt

  • Pervious Concrete

  • Pervious Pavers

    Permeable pavement has pores or openings that allow water to pass through the surface and stone base material and infiltrate into the underlying soils.

Project applications
Project Applications in Medina around 1905.

  • Streets

  • Parking lots

  • Sidewalks and paths

  • Driveways

  • Patios

  • Playgrounds


Potential benefits
Potential Benefits in Medina around 1905.

  • Reduces the rate and quantity of stormwater runoff

  • Reduces stress on the sewer system

  • Recharges groundwater

  • Filters out silt, pollutants, and debris

  • Maintains natural drainage paths

  • Reduces standing water nuisance


Potential benefits1
Potential Benefits in Medina around 1905.

  • Reduces stormwater infrastructure needs (pipes, ponds, catch basins)

  • Offers good alternative to conventional stormwater mitigation

  • Better erosion control

  • Reduces ice buildup and need for salting during the winter

  • Provides better traction


Design considerations
Design Considerations in Medina around 1905.

  • Soils

  • Frost penetration


Permeable pavement limitations
Permeable Pavement Limitations in Medina around 1905.

Use of permeable pavement is not recommended in the following cases:

  • Industrial “brownfield sites or sites with contaminated soils

  • Where site layouts direct clogging sediment on the pavement surface

  • Sites with excessively steep grades


Maintenance considerations
Maintenance Considerations in Medina around 1905.

  • Protect pavement from silt and sediment during and after construction

  • Vacuum sweep at least twice a year

  • Do not seal coat

  • Do not sand

  • Use caution when snowplowing

  • Post signs advising maintenance crews


Maintenance considerations1
Maintenance Considerations in Medina around 1905.

  • Perform periodic inspections; look for clogging, raveling, cracking, and wear

Pervious Concrete Cost Comparison in Medina around 1905.

Common Excavation – 11,000CY($6.00/CY) = $ 66,000*

Fabric – 11,000SY($1.00/SY) = $ 11,000

1-1/2” Crushed Rock – 5000CY($52.00/CY) = $260,000*

7” Pervious Concrete – 8470SY($46.50/SY) = $394,000

Total Cost for Pervious Concrete System = $731,000

Per SY Cost for Pervious Concrete System = $ 86.30**

*Average depth beneath concrete = 1.75-feet

Estimated Bituminous Road Cost = $257,000

Estimated Underground Infiltration Cost = $417,500

Total Est Cost – Bit Road & Infiltration = $674,000

Per SY Est Cost – Bit Road & Infiltration = $ 79.60**

**8.5% Increased Cost for Pervious Concrete
