This course introduces the student to stormwater infiltration design in typical clay soils of the Piedmont. The presenter describes proper assessment, design and construction of actual case studies. The infiltration data from one of these case studies, which has been validated by years of academic monitoring and research, is then projected over its own broader watershed. The presenter walks through the process of assessment utilizing actual methods and field data collected during the project design and construction. The presenter then describes the comparison of the pre-design field data to the post construction monitoring results collected by both the presenter and the University research team. Utilizing data from a commercial project with over 10 years of successful function, the presenter describes University research that models potential impacts of pervious concrete pavement on a watershed scale utilizing GIS and HydroCad computer software.

He initiated Charlotte’s storm water stream restoration program, and five master’s thesis research projects. Mr. Estes has initiated, conducted and published hydraulic research in peer review publications such as the Journal of American Water Resource Association and industry publications including Stormwater Magazine. He has been a contributor to several books including The Engineering Guide to LEED New Construction. Mr. Estes initiated and designed the first pervious concrete parking infiltration BMP in North Carolina that was constructed in clay soils, then researched and monitored for 3 consecutive years. Most recently, Mr. Estes has assisted North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources rewrite Chapter 18 of the NC BMP Manual, “Permeable Pavement”. Changes to this chapter were in part due to research initiated and conducted by Mr. Estes.
