WDNR and SOC have convened a work team to develop a new permeable pavement technical standard with a focus on water quality benefits.
This standard will be the first for Wisconsin and will address allowable infiltration rates, infiltration bed requirements, compaction mitigation, contributing source area limitations, treatment performance, groundwater protection, and maintenance requirements.
This standard will address the effectiveness in removing volume and/or pollutants from stormwater runoff and how to determine that effectiveness.
It will not address pavement construction. Criteria for the new standard will be based on existing science and technical experience.
The DNR is currently initiating research with multiple partners to study permeable pavements systems as stormwater control measures.
The research will inform the standard.
Initial Review Target:
1st quarter 2014
Broad Review Target:
2nd quarter 2014
Expected Publication Date:
3rd quarter 2014
Work Team Status:
This diverse team is currently researching technical issues and working on draft language for the standard.
Review the team meeting minutes below for more information. Non team members are able to attend and observe meetings.
Please RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org at least one week before the meeting date.
