Porous asphalt was developed to improve safety on roadways, but it also has many other advantages. Porous pavements are highly effective in reducing pollution in stormwater runoff from pavements. Many contaminants are removed as the stormwater passes through the porous asphalt, stone recharge bed, and soils through filtration and microbial action. This reduces spray and splash in wet weather, thus reducing, hydroplaning and increase visibility. Also friction and skid resistance are increased with the help of surface texture, also noise between the tire-pavement interactions is reduced. Many researches on porous asphalt mixture have been conducted for the past two decades. However, there remains some concern about the potential adverse impacts of infiltrated surface water on the underlying groundwater. This artic reviews the use of porous asphalt pavement. In this study, a critical review on history and benefits is presented followed by review of general studies of using porous asphalt pavement, and some recent scientific studies that examine potential contamination of soil and groundwater due to infiltration systems. The researches indicate that porous asphalt pavement is more efficient than conventional pavements in terms of retaining pollutants, improving the quality of water and runoff while maintaining infiltration.
