New guide for pervious concrete maintenance

The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association has released a revised Pervious Concrete Pavement Maintenance and Operations Guide. 

The eight-page guide replaces the Pervious Concrete Pavement Maintenance Guidelinespublication which was originally distributed in 2006. The new guide is a culmination of the collaborative efforts of the association’s pervious concrete promotion subcommittee.

“I want to thank all the members of the subcommittee who made valuable contributions to the guide,” says subcommittee chairman Dave Frentress of NRMCA Producer member CalPortland.

“The members recognized the urgent need and made it a priority to produce this. Additionally, I appreciate Bruce Cody and the Pennsylvania Aggregates and Concrete Association for providing the base template for us to build on to produce this version.”

“This is neither a promotional brochure nor a design guide,” said the association’s senior director, national resources, Phil Kresge. “Rather, it is intended to provide direction for owners and property managers whose sites include pervious concrete as an integral part of their storm water management.”

According to Kresge, the guide explains the role that proper maintenance plays with regard to pervious concrete’s effectiveness and its durability. It then identifies the owner’s responsibilities to provide that maintenance. “Every pervious concrete contractor should consider providing this guide to each of his or her customers,” he says.

The Pervious Concrete Pavement Maintenance and Operations Guide can be found at www.PerviousPavement.org.
