Life-cycle costing can be used to benchmark pavement type options such as permeable and conventional pavements to determine which is the most cost effective. Traditionally when performing a life-cycle cost analysis between permeable and conventional pavements, only the standard capital costs for initial construction and maintenance and rehabilitation costs for each pavement types are considered. However, to truly evaluate compare permeable and convention, the analysis should take into account the benefits associated with permeable pavements such as a reducing stormwater runoff volume (and facilities), reducing stormwater runoff peak flows, reducing surface ponding, reducing stormwater pollutant load, decreased downstream erosion and increase groundwater recharge, etc. This paper describes the development of a comprehensive tool to determine both the pavement and off pavement benefits of permeable pavements.
