This will be a presentation on maintenance issues related to permeable interlocking concrete pavement (PICP). Permeable pavement systems have maintenance access advantages over manufactured treatment devices, traditional detention basins and other stormwater control measures. This presentation reviews the clogging mechanisms impacting PICP, and highlights the different types of cleaning equipment currently available. Participants will learn the maintenance solutions available to provide long-term infiltration performance of PICP.
understand how PICP systems clog and surface infiltrate rates are reduced over time.
describe proper maintenance procedures for PICP and the effectiveness of different cleaning devices currently on the market.
describe the latest industry research on maintaining PICP.
