Goal: 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.
Publication Date: February 2014
Work Team Status: After a year and a half of reviewing literature, consulting experts, drafting language, and reviewing comments, the team has completed Wisconsin’s first permeable pavement technical standard. WDNR authorities have approved and published the standard.
The final Standard 1008, Permeable Pavement and Technical Note can be found here: http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/stormwater/standards/postconst_standards.html
