Presto Geosystems is the innovative company behind GEOBLOCK®, GEOPAVE® and GEOWEB®, three porous paving systems that are designed to fit a landscape plan's storm water requirements and budget.


Presto Geosystems, a porous pavement manufacturing company based in Appleton, Wisconsin, recently introduced its design assistant tool for engineers, storm water designers and landscape contractors.

The new tool is a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that assists users in choosing product and input values for loading requirements, infill type and subgrade strength. Once these values are calculated, the tool will return recommendations for fill/base depth and values for runoff coefficient and water volume storage (with aggregate infill).

A statement from the company reads, "This tool is designed to give a basic design for a pervious pavement; all designs should be verified by a qualified engineer before implementation. This tool provides AASHTO loading standards, or allows the user to input project specific values if known. The water retention depth is based on an assumed storage availability of 30% of the base layer depth. This storage depth may vary depending on site conditions."
