OConnor, T. AND Mike Borst. Update to Permeable Pavement Research at the Edison Environmental Center - abstract. Presented at 2016 EWRI Low Impact Development Conference, Portland, MA, August 29 - 31, 2016.

Impact/Purpose:

This presentation summarizes past findings and addresses current water quality efforts.

Description:

Abstract The EPA’s Urban Watershed Management Branch (UWMB) has been monitoring the permeable pavement demonstration site at the Edison Environmental Center, NJ since 2010. This site has three different types of permeable pavement including: interlocking concrete permeable pavers; porous concrete; and permeable asphalt. The parking lot is instrumented with water content reflectometers and thermistors for continuous monitoring and has four lined sections for each surface to capture permeable pavement infiltrate for water quality analyses.Previous technical releases concerning the demonstration site focused on monitoring techniques, observed chloride and nutrient concentrations, and infiltration and evaporation rates. This presentation summarizes past findings and addresses current water quality efforts.
