Stewart Airport Pervious Asphalt Pavement


Pervious asphalt pavement at Stewart Airport

A 6-acre pervious asphalt pavement parking lot was installed at Stewart International Airport to expand the existing parking lot capacity while promoting stormwater infiltration. The site also utilizes bio-swales, infiltration trenches, a large void sub-base and rain tanks. In addition, some of the runoff is collected and used for the irrigation system using solar-powered pumps.
