This article is about a three year study that advances knowledge about the performance of permeable pavements (PP) under Ontario climatic and geologic conditions by evaluating the functional, hydraulic and water quality effectiveness of three types of PPs and conventional asphalt. In addition, the study assesses the benefits of using PPs in areas with low permeability native soils, identifies critical cold climate factors that may influence performance, and compares the effectiveness of alternative pavement cleaning practices.
