Presto Geosystems Releases a Porous Pavement Design Assistant

Porous pavement solutions have drawn considerable interest in communities for the green engineering benefits they provide. Porous pavements can greatly reduce stormwater runoff by enabling a high infiltration or percolation rate of water into underlying soils. The permeability of these systems can also trap suspended solids, thus filtering them out of any residual runoff so water that is shed is c... »
