Can permeable pavements be used on steeply sloping sites?

There are different design methods to cope with sloping sites. These include constructing check dams or baffles within the sub-base to restrict the flow or increasing the depth of the sub-base. The maximum gradient without the need for baffles is usually 1:20. Contact Tobermore for more information regarding sloping sites.
