The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Technical Standard 1008 Permeable Pavement has been updated and is now available on the DNR’s storm water post-construction technical standards webpage. Changes from the previous version address maintenance and flow path concerns based on new research and technologies. Revisions included input from experts in the field and public review. This technical standard was updated through the SOC Modified Process.
The DNR maintains, implements and develops storm water construction and post-construction technical standards to assist with the compliance of Chapter NR 151, Wisconsin Administrative Code. The DNR uses the process established by SOC to develop or revise technical standards pursuant to Subchapter V of NR 151. The DNR is a member of SOC, along with several other federal and state agencies and conservation organizations, to ensure that technical standards used for soil and water conservation in Wisconsin are science-based and involve collaboration with other stakeholders.
