Roadway Improvements Using Pervious Pavers
Collins Speaker Series
Assembly Park in Delevan, Wisconsin underwent rehabilitation of over 2 miles of their private roadway system in 2014 with the installation of a permeable paver system. With the completion of this project, tremendous value has been added to the Assembly Park community for its residents. An improved roadway surface utilizing Low Impact Development (LID) practices, provided enhanced protection for Delavan Lake and overall beautification of its surroundings. This presentation will walk you through the project from start to finish, describing the project history, stormwater management concerns, site challenges, and permitting. It will also identify valuable lessons learned throughout the project development as well as provide a post-installation review of the project over 5 years since completion.
