Permeable pavements are a type of SUDS that are becoming more common to allow infiltration, to minimize runoff volumes and to treat urban water stormwater by soil filtration. However, urban stormwater runoff contains significant concentrations of suspended sediments that can cause clogging and reduce the infiltration capacity and effectiveness of permeable pavements. This study used a full-scale infiltration test procedure to evaluate the infiltration performance of 20 permeable pavements that have been in service for over 2 to 9 years in the Netherlands. The observed infiltration capacities range between 20 and 342 mm/h.
