Stormwater Management Model for Environmental Design of Permeable Pavement
Permeable pavement is a key component in reproducing pre-development hydrologic regimes, because it can reduce surface runoff, improve water quality and recharge groundwater. In designing a permeable pavement installation, it is fundamentally important to provide and maintain surface infiltration capacity that allows an adequate volume of stormwater to be captured and treated by the facility. This chapter details the underlying method and function of a free-ware program that uses the US EPA Stormwater Management Model (SWMM) for the design of permeable pavement installations.
