Permeable Pavement Design, Installation, and Maintenance

Presented by Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve Coastal Training Program; Mississippi Department of Marine Resources; The Center for Watershed Protection; and Chesapeake Bay Stormwater Training Partnership.

Wednesday September 1st
10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Workshop Overview:
Recent advances in both research and technology have shifted permeable pavement into the stormwater forefront along with other runoff reduction practices. This workshop will begin with a webcast co‐hosted by The Center for Watershed Protection and the Chesapeake Bay Stormwater Training Partnership that will provide practical design, installation and maintenance tips to boost the runoff reduction and pollutant removal performance of pervious concrete, porous asphalt, permeable pavers, and other types of permeable pavement. They will also provide information about updated and essential design tools for the stormwater professional, and a panel of experts will address common myths and concerns surrounding this practice.

After the webcast Harry Lee James of the MS Concrete Industries Association will discuss the types of permeable pavement used at Grand Bay’s Coastal Resources Center. Participants will then have the opportunity to visit each of three permeable pavement sites within the reserve so they can see the technology in action.

Agenda Highlights:
Overview of Permeable Pavement Types; Innovative Designs and Industry Advancements; Installation & Maintenance Tips; Permeable Pavement Lessons Learned; Resources and Tips
