Pervious concrete pavement is a unique and effective way to capture storm water and allow it to seep into the ground thus recharging groundwater, reducing stormwater runoff, and meeting stormwater regulations. This system has been recommended by EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and geotechnical engineers as a Best Management Practices (BMPs) for the management of stormwater runoff. This thesis presents experimental study on the potential use of limestone dust for producing a lightweight composite material that will add some of physical properties of concrete material having various levels of Limestone Powder Waste (LPW) in No-Fines concrete material. The obtained compressive strength, flexural strength, split tensile strength, unit weight satisfy the relevant Indian standards. The result shows the effect of high level replacement of Limestone Powder Waste (LPW).
