  • Onsite Storm Water Management (SWM) is becoming increasingly important and, in many cases, mandatory. Concerns regarding municipal sewer system performance and watershed health have generated numerous requirements and techniques to mitigate the effects of storms at the local or site level. Following an overview of these issues, this course examines, in detail, a high-performance system of permeable plastic paving grids that addresses such issues while meeting the most stringent demands of onsite traffic, aesthetics, and SWM. This examination includes installation techniques, details, and specifications.

  • Plantable permeable paving systems continue to grow in scope and practicality as we search for ways to reduce our carbon footprint, improve water quality, diminish flooding and erosion, reduce the urban heat island from reradiated heat in our cities and environment, and add attractive open space to building sites and neighborhoods. This course looks at plantable permeable pavement system types, their use, and how they can help achieve sustainability goals.

  • Low Impact Development (LID) has several advantages over traditional stormwater management approaches. Since impervious pavement is the main source of stormwater runoff, LID strategies recommend permeable paving for hard surfaces. The course discusses LID, its goals and principles and how they are achieved. It provides an overview of permeable pavements, and more particularly, plastic permeable grid paver systems and how they support LID goals.
