Oaks Designer Resource Guide 6.0

What is a Permeable Pavement?

Permeable pavements are pavement systems that allow water to pass through the surface in to an open-graded aggregate base. Widely recognized as a Low Impact Development (LID) strategy, Oaks permeable pavements conform to municipal storm water regulations.

Associated benefits may include: 1. On-site storm water quantity management 2. Improved water quality 3. Groundwater and tree root zone recharge

4. Reduced hydraulic, erosion and thermal impacts to receiving waters 5. Possible reduction or elimination of traditional storm water management infrastructure

PERMEABLE PAVEMENT SYSTEM Below are the main components of a Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavement (PICP) system.

Concrete Curb

Concrete Pavers

Open Graded Bedding Layer

Permeable Joint Material

Open Graded Base Reservoir

Open Graded Sub-base

Geotextile (optional) in Full- or Partial Infiltration systems, liner in No-Infiltration systems

Underdrain (optional in Full-Infiltration systems) Soil Subgrade (Uncompacted for Full- and Partial- Infiltration systems, compacted for No- Infiltration systems)

ASTM No. 8 Grading Requirements Jointing and Bedding Aggregates

Sieve Size 12.5 mm (1/2 in.) 9.5 mm (3/8 in.) 4.75 mm (No. 4) 2.36 mm (No. 8) 1.16 mm (No. 16)

Percent Passing 100 85 to 100 10 to 30 0 to 10 0 to 5

ASTM No. 57 Grading Requirements Base Aggregates

Sieve Size 37.5 mm (1 1/2 in.) 25 mm (1 in.) 12.5 mm (1/2 in.) 4.75 mm (No. 4) 2.36 mm (No. 8)

Percent Passing 100 95 to 100 25 to 60 0 to 10 0 to 5

(commonly referred to as 1/4” clear stone)

ASTM No. 2 Grading Requirements Subbase Aggregate

Sieve Size 75 mm (3 in.) 63 mm (2 1/2 in.) 50 mm (2 in.) 37.5 mm (1 1/2 in.) 19 mm (3/4 in.)

Percent Passing 100 90 to 100 35 to 70 0 to 15 0 to 5

(commonly referred to as 3/4” clear stone)

All aggregate types listed should have less than 2% passing the No. 200 sieve, and should be manufactured sharp stone (not river rock)

(commonly referred to as rail ballast)
