The purpose of this book chapter is to summarize the recent literature on permeable pavements and related systems, highlighting current trends in research and practice, and to recommend future areas of research and development. Note that permeable pavements are also known as porous and pervious pavements depending on the industry and country of origin. The development of permeable pavements using concrete pavers as an integral part of sustainable drainage systems is reviewed in the context of traditional and modern urban drainage. Emphasis is given to detailed design, maintenance and water quality control aspects. The advantages and disadvantages of different pavement surfaces are discussed with the help of recent and relevant case study findings. The latest innovations are explained, and their potential for further research work is outlined. Current research regarding the development of systems combining geothermal heating and cooling, water treatment and recycling, and pavement is promising.
