Porous Pavement Workshop
Pavements are some of the most prolific structures in the modern U.S. landscape. Traditional impervious paved surfaces have been inextricably linked to adverse impacts on water quality at the regional and watershed levels. Many technologies exist to mitigate these threats, including innovative paving alternatives.
Porous pavements are one of the most rapidly expanding practices available for protecting urban watersheds and aquifers. Recent advancements in technical design specifications and improved material selection make porous pavement technologies a powerful tool for engineers and developers facing ever increasing treatment performance standards.
This workshop provides stormwater management professionals with the most up to date characteristics of successful porous pavement applications. This full-day training includes field visits to a variety of on-the ground porous pavement installations throughout the UNH campus and the region. Participants will learn key design principles necessary to successfully design, evaluate, specify, and install porous pavement for stormwater management.
Where are the workshops?
The workshops will begin at the porous asphalt parking lot at UNH located in the eastern corner of the West Edge Parking Lot. The UNH campus map may be found at: http://www.unh.edu/transportation/visitor/map.pdf The field facility at the West End Parking lot is the blue-colored lot on the upper left hand corner of the map.

Porous Pavements Tour Agenda
|8:45 – 9:00||Registration – Welcome Workshop Material
Please note: The Porous Pavement workshops will begin and end at the Center's field facility. There are NO BATHROOMS at this field facility.
|9:00 – 9:30||Introduction to porous pavements at UNHSC Porous Asphalt Lot. The tour bus will leave the parking lot between 9:20 and 9:30 and will not return until the conclusion of the program. It is important that participants be on time since once the bus leaves the parking lot it is extremely difficult to arrange for program inclusion.|
|9:30 - 10:00||Tour of UNH Porous Installations including the Eliot Alumni Center PA lot, Hood House PICP lot, and the Williamson PC lot.
|10:30 – 11:30||Introduction, Porous Pavement History, Acceptable Uses, and System Basics
|11:30 – 2:00||
Working Lunch at the Hugh Gregg Discovery Center: Design and Construction Considerations for Porous Pavements
|2:00 – 3:30||Field Trip to Surrounding Porous Pavement Sites|
|4:00||Workshop Ends with Return to UNHSC PA Lot|
