Abstract
Laboratory and economic studies were undertaken to determine the feasibility of utilizing porous pavements to alleviate combined sewer overflow pollution and reduce the design parameters of storm sewer systems by allowing storm runoff to percolate back into the ground. Laboratory studies of candidate materials revealed a porous asphaltic concrete containing 5.5% asphalt by weight and aggregate graded to allow a water flow of 76 in. per hour to be the optimal porous road material. Materials testing for stability, durability, and freeze-thaw susceptibility proved this material suitable for use in road construction.
