2007 Annual Report
2007 Highlights LIDs are Solid Performers Porous Asphalt An Evolving Process Collaboration A Growing Resource Impact on Policy Looking Ahead
UNHSC completed a two-year study of a porous asphalt parking lot at our field site in 2006. Our data and observations indicate that porous asphalt is a viable, cost-effective approach to treating water quality and reducing the volume of runoff. The system performed exceptionally well in winter and proved itself to be as durable as conventional asphalt. It also appears to require as much as 75 percent less road salt for deicing.
