This program provides detailed instruction on how to implement pervious concrete pavements as a solution to reducing stormwater runoff from building sites and other paved areas. Attendees will learn the details of pervious concrete pavement systems, engineering properties and construction techniques.

  • Reduction of Stormwater Runoff
    Pervious concrete is a performance-engineered concrete with a 15-30% void system that allows rainwater to percolate through it. When pervious concrete is used for parking areas, streets, plazas and walkways it minimizes stormwater runoff to surrounding streams and
    lakes and allows for natural filtration to recharge local groundwater supplies.

  • Environmental Benefits
    Although pervious concrete has been used in some areas for decades, recent interest in
    green building and recognition of pervious pavements by the U.S. EPA as a best practice for stormwater management has heightened interest in its use throughout North America. Its use supports national initiatives such as Cool Communities and Low Impact Development and provides a potential for credit in the LEED® rating system for sustainable building construction.

  • Economic Benefits
    Pervious concrete reduces the need for expensive stormwater drainage and wet pond retention systems, thereby allowing for more economical and beneficial land use.



  1. Economic and Environmental Benefits

  2. Hydrological and Structural Design

  3. Specifications, Mix Design and Test Methods

  4. Construction Techniques

  5. Contractor Certification

  6. Durability and Maintenance

  7. Local Applications and Case Studies



This course is intended for civil engineers, architects, landscape architects, and public works officials and others who design pavements and stormwater management systems. Contractors, product suppliers and land developers will also benefit from this seminar.
