This presentation provides an introduction to permeable interlocking concrete pavement (PICP) systems. An overview of the problem with impervious surfaces and the advantages of Low Impact Development, specifically stormwater infiltration practices through pavement surfaces. The presentation addresses designing for hydrological and structural requirements, and reviews required details. The design approach discussed is based on the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute’s PICP design manual. Specifications and maintenance requirements are reviewed along with information on winter performance. Several project case studies illustrate the construction process.
- Participants will leave course with the understanding of how permeable interlocking concrete pavement can provide stormwater management benefits to land development projects.
- Participants will leave course with the understanding of proper specifications for construction of PICP systems.
- Participants will leave course with the understanding of industry recommendations for maintenance of PICP systems.
- Participants will leave course with the ability to identify industry resources for specifying and designing PICP systems.
