The GRMCA sponsored the Georgia Stormwater Manual Workshop hosted by the Council for Quality Growth on Friday, June 3rd. AKA “The Blue Book,” the Georgia Stormwater Manual is the premier guide engineers in Georgia reference for design stormwater management solutions.
The manual was previously published in 2001 and its chapter on pervious concrete was poorly written. The industry has come a long way since, and GRMCA worked with the Atlanta Regional Commission to rewrite the section on pervious concrete to include industry standard reference documents and certifications that were not previously included.
As part of the workshop, GRMCA was given a portion of the meeting to specifically go over the updates regarding pervious concrete. We believe these changes will give engineers a more favorable impression of our product thus resulting in more interest in its design.
