Experimental study of permeable reservoir pavements for surface runoff control at source

L. A. Acioli, A. L. L. Da Silveira & J. A. Goldenfum
The uncontrolled expansion of the majority of the cities is generating many infrastructure problems and environmental impacts. The usual drainage systems have proved to be inefficient and excessively expensive. Alternative solutions, trying to compensate urbanisation and imperviousness effects are being researched, trying to favour source control. This paper presents an experimental study, developed at IPH-UFRGS (Institute for Hydraulic Research of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul), in Porto Alegre, Brazil, which seeks to...
