Pollution retention of different permeable pavements with reservoir structure at high hydraulic loads

C. Dierkes, M. Lohmann, M. Becker & U. Raasch
Permeable pavements for sustainable stormwater management and source control are have been furthered and investigated in Germany for many years. In particular the runoff from streets and parking areas with low traffic densities can be permitted to infiltrate with the aid of concrete pavers with wide joints. But runoff from traffic areas contains pollutants such as heavy metals and hydrocarbons that can endanger the soil and groundwater. Furthermore solids in stormwater runoff bring about clogging....
