Permeable pavement is a key component in reproducing pre-development hydrologic regimes, because it can reduce surface runoff, improve water quality and recharge groundwater. In designing a permeable pavement installation, it is fundamentally important to provide and maintain 1. a surface infiltration and 2. a storage capacity that allow an adequate volume of stormwater to be captured and treated by the facility. This paper details the underlying method and function of a freeware computer program that uses the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) stormwater management model (SWMM) for the design of permeable pavement installations.
