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.
