Permeable pavement and bioretention swales are two examples of stormwater practices that help decrease flood risk, channel erosion, poor water quality,and degradation of aquatic habitat by filtering stormwater and preserving or re-instating natural hydrologic functions that existed prior to development. This report addresses the concren about these stormwater infiltration practices long term effectiveness, the potential for infiltrated stormwater to contaminate soil and groundwater resources, and other factors by evaluating the benefits and limitations of the technologies under climate and soil conditions representative of watersheds in the Greater Toronto Area.
