This study focuses on a widely known but little studied stormwater mitigation technique, pervious concrete (PC) paving, which is used in place of an impervious paved surface to both reduce and potentially treat stormwater runoff flows from an urban surface. This construction technology is widely accepted as a beneficial urban stormwater mitigation practice, but has not been adequately evaluated with regard to pollutant removal efficiency, before, during, and after construction.
