Porous Pavement Workshop
Pavements are some of the most prolific structures in the modern U.S. landscape. Traditional impervious paved surfaces have been inextricably linked to adverse impacts on water quality at the regional and watershed levels. Many technologies exist to mitigate these threats, including innovative paving alternatives.
Porous pavements are one of the most rapidly expanding practices available for protecting urban watersheds and aquifers. Recent advancements in technical design specifications and improved material selection make porous pavement technologies a powerful tool for engineers and developers facing ever increasing treatment performance standards.
This workshop provides stormwater management professionals with the most up to date characteristics of successful porous pavement applications. This full-day training includes field visits to a variety of on-the ground porous pavement installations throughout the UNH campus and the region. Participants will learn key design principles necessary to successfully design, evaluate, specify, and install porous pavement for stormwater management.
Where are the workshops?
The Porous Pavement Workshop will begin at H-lot which is located on the main UNH Campus right across from the outdoor pool and the old snively hockey arena. Parking passes are available at the kiosk at the entrance of the parking lot. Tell the attendent you are joining the UNH Stormwater Center workshop and they will give you a pass to place on your dashboard.
