Permeable pavement allows stormwater to drain through the surface layer into a stone reservoir. This is where water can be stored and then infiltrated into surrounding soils. Permeable pavement is designed with an overflow and an optional subdrain feature. Key features for permeable pavement designs are shown in the diagram below.
