Provision of Parking Lot Pavement for Surface Water Pollution Control Studies.
Impervious areas are associated with increased contaminant loads, while porous pavement, by allowing water to infiltrate into the subsurface layers, may reduce pollutants reaching receiving waters. This paper describes the design, construction, and instrumentation of pavements, where traffic speed is less than 50 km/hr, e.g. in parking lots and certain roadways. Four different, instrumented pavement structures were installed in a typical parking lot and also tested under laboratory conditions, for the study of the flux of 23 contaminants including heat.
