Milwaukee’s stormwater and flooding issues have been a major concern for the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewage District MMSD and many local residents. With the World’s largest music festival, Summerfest, at the Milwaukee World Festival grounds, the staff wanted to take steps to help combat the flooding so they can focus on the festival not the weather.
One of those steps was installing Spancrete RePlenish precast pervious paving system into the parking lot and sidewalks of their headquarters in spring of 2015. RePlenish is designed to let the water return directly to the ground, significantly reducing the pressure on Milwaukee’s stormwater system.
This application of RePlenish has a water infiltrate of 500 inches per hour. The parking lot is laid out in a specific pattern to help maintain optimal efficiencies of this product. The asphalt/parking lot is sloped slightly to the center where the RePlenish is located allowing all the water to run towards the system. Designing the parking lot in this fashion is an efficient and cost effective method for RePlenish.
