Permeable Pavements using Recycled Rubber
November 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This is a virtual offering that runs from 12:00-1:00 PM EDT.
The webinar will share successful applications, design considerations, material characteristics, Life Cycle Costs (LCC) and measured performance of in place Stormflow. Stormflow is a permeable pavement composed of rubber sourced from recycled tires, aggregate and binder. It has been used throughout Southwestern Ontario for the last nine years in numerous Low Impact Development (LID) applications, reducing runoff and providing a paved surface for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles. The behaviour of the Stormflow will be presented, including permeability, durability and freeze-thaw resistance. These characteristics have been measured in the field and laboratory. Uses of Stormflow to date and recommended additional applications will be discussed.
The learning objectives for the webinar will be an understanding of the following:
- Application of permeable pavement as LID
- Successful applications of Stormflow in SW Ontario
- Pavement structures for stormwater and structural demands in various applications
- Measured and observed performance of Stormflow over the past nine years at numerous field sites in SW Ontario
- Life Cycle Cost of Stormflow and alternatives.
You may be eligible for 1 CPD hour.
