Permeable Pavement Used On Sustainable Drainage Systems (SUDs): A Synthetic Review Of Recent Literature
Free (open access)
M. Marchioni & G. Becciu
This literature review covers the role of permeable pavement on urban drainage and sustainability, and summarizes literature focusing on the system’s general behavior and full scale tests. By allowing water to infiltrate its structure, the permeable pavement works on reducing runoff volume and improving water quality while still providing a useful area, comprising the main premises on sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDs). This solution is already well known, is commercially available and referred to in many municipality legislations. Analyzing the literature, it is possible to confirm the feasibility of the pavement, even though research is still required on specifics areas. Keywords: permeable pavement, urban drainage, sustainability, SUDs.
