dc.description.abstractSustainable Best Management Practices provide a means for contractors, engineers, municipalities and others to better deal with ecological changes resulting from urban developments. Two phases of research were established to assess both the sociological and technical aspects of pervious concrete. In Phase 1 a survey was created and distributed to determine the perception respondents harbored for pervious concretes. In Phase 2 laboratory testing explored the effects of two different layer configurations on filtration capability and change in pH. Water quality testing determined that 3-layer systems filtered more effectively than 2-layer systems. Additionally, this research confirmed that barriers do exist for the use of pervious concrete in Georgia and confirmed the need for targeted educational programs on pervious concrete.
