Storm water management is a key component of urban infrastructure design. Numerous agencies throughout the United States and Canada include permeable pavements as a key component of best management practices for stormwater management.
If properly designed and constructed, permeable pavements can help rainwater infiltrate soil, decrease urban heating, replenish groundwater and reduce overall storm water runoff. The construction of permeable pavement systems that can accommodate surface water runoff is gaining increasing attention through the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program.
This webinar provides background on the key features of permeable asphalt, concrete and interlocking concrete block pavements along with guidance, design tools and methodologies to assist in designing pavements to accommodate hydrological and structural pavement design for municipal and parking area permeable pavements and compare equivalent structural designs.
The learning objectives for this webinar include:
- Understand the key input parameters for the successful design of permeable asphalt, concrete and interlocking concrete block pavements.
- Ability to design a permeable pavement for both structural and hydrologic capacity.
- Recognize good maintenance practices for permeable pavements
- Utilize previously impervious infrastructure to reduce the impact of peak stormwater runoff and improve stormwater quality.
Instructor: David K. Hein, P.Eng.
David Hein is a consulting Civil Engineer with over 35 years of experience in the design, evaluation and management of pavement infrastructure. He recently retired from Applied Research Associates, Inc. of Toronto, Ontario. He is the past president of the American Society of Civil Engineers Transportation and Development Institute, long term member of the Transportation Association of Canada and has represented Canada on the World Road Association pavements and asset management committees since 2002. He has been involved in numerous national and international projects including many of the public/private/ partnership highway construction projects across Canada and the United States. Mr. Hein has completed numerous pavement design, evaluation and management projects throughout British Columbia including both design and management of the Sea to Sky Highway and is a regular instructor completing specialty design, construction and maintenance courses for the British Columbia Ministry of Transportation.
Webinar time: 1:00 – 2:30pm Pacific Standard Time (PST)

- Webcam – in order to engage and collaborate, participants will be expected to have their webcams on for the duration of the class
- Internet connection - For best results, you will want to ensure you have an internet connection with an upload/download speed of 3-5 Mbps. You can test your internet speed here. Minimum recommended speed is 1.5 Mbps, but anything below 3 Mbps may result in loss of quality or buffering. Ideally hardwired connection versus wireless for stability - connect your computer directly to your router using an ethernet cable, rather than using your home wi-fi.
- A quiet space with minimal distractions - microphone will be engaged for interactive sessions. Please plan to be fully engaged in the class and clear your work schedule just as you would for the in-class program.
- Comfortable chair
