Permeable Pavement Design for Storm Water Management – DNR Technical Standard 1008 with Case Studies
Thursday, April 17th
12:00 – 1:00pm
DNR just released guidelines that clarify current best practices for the design and installation of permeable pavement materials which are defined as: A pavement system such as pervious concrete, porous asphalt, permeable pavers/blocks or similar surface that allows movement of storm water through the pavement surface and into a base/subbase reservoir designed to achieve water quality and quantity benefits. This program will discuss conditions where these systems make sense, system features, water quality and quantity calculations and maintenance criteria. Several cases studies will highlight the real world application of this relatively new stormwater management tool.
Pete Wood serves as a Water Resources Engineer for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources in the State’s Southeast Region. He has been with the DNR since 1991 and his responsibilities include municipal and construction site storm water discharge regulations and urban storm water grants.
Thomas H. Price is Principal Civil Engineer/Hydrologist for the Conservation Design Forum. In over 20 years of practice he has been involved in a wide variety of stormwater and non-point pollution management activities including assisting watershed organizations prepare management plans; planning, designing and implementing stormwater BMPs; and teaching courses on BMP design and implementation ranging from naturalized detention basins, to bioretention, to streambank and shoreline restoration. His work has emphasized addressing the hydrologic impacts of development through integration of stormwater drainage and retention systems into the overall development plan. In his current post, Tom is responsible for the oversight of all engineering aspects and the integration of this discipline into every project at CDF. Working closely with other design professionals, Tom continues to identify and implement innovative stormwater management and stream and wetland restoration techniques to prevent and mitigate the impacts of urban development. Tom holds BS and MS degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Wisconsin.
