From 2005 to 2008, TRCA has published very useful NC State PICP Research Funding Approved PICP reports on monitoring a heavily used PICP parking lot, At the 2012 ICPI Summer meeting, the Foundation Trustees asphalt parking lot and bioswale at a community college. also approved funding for the North Carolina State Uni- Based on this work, the quality of their monitoring and versity (NCSU) to monitor a small PICP parking lot on low reporting is reputable and has been used by members to infiltration soils owned by the City of Durham, NC. The US gain approval for PICP projects.

The deliverables will help address PICP, pervious concrete and porous asphalt will be impor- questions from stormwater agencies on nutrient reduction tant to furthering PICP in Ontario, wider Canada, and in on low infiltration soils. The project started in fall 2012 and cold climate regions in the U.S. monitoring will continue for two years. Industry Standards and Research and Development Standards Development strates the range of applications suitable for interlocking concrete pavements and provides essential information on each. The reader is directed to specific ICPI design, installa- tion and maintenance resources for these applications. The bulletin gives direction on how to adapt systems to specific applications. ICPI staff participates on ASTM and CSA committees governing paving product standards and liaisons with the American Association of State Highway Officials (AASHTO), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the U.S. and Canadian Green Building Councils, Transportation Associa- tion of Canada (TAC) and the Canadian Society of Civil Engineers (CSCE) to represent industry best interests. ICPI’s participation on ASTM and CSA committees has led to im- provements in existing paver standards and test methods. ICPI Technical Bulletin Revisions In 2012, ICPI updated two of its key Tech Specs. Updated design procedures and referenced standards have been included in each of these Tech Specs. ICPI Tech Spec 15 A Guide for the Specification of Mechanically Installed Interlocking Concrete Pavement The title for Tech Spec 15 was modified to more clearly in- dicate that the bulletin is about considerations when writ- ing specifications for machine installed concrete pavers. Specifications using this installation method are framed around a method statement where the paver manufac- turer, paver installation contractor and testing laboratories provide specific information on the paving and bedding materials, test methods and frequencies, installation meth- ods and measures for documenting project quality control/ quality assurance. The updated version provides additional information on when and how to stitch together selected paver layers or clusters. ICPI Tech Spec 10– An Applications Guide for Interlocking Concrete Pavements ASCE PICP Design Standard Development Update Tech Spec 10 is completely revised to be the “starter piece” pose and edit a draft standard. 2013 anticipates expand- for design professionals and contractors.
