Pervious concrete is a relatively new concept for rural road pavement, with increase into the problems in rural areas related to the low ground water level, agricultural problem. Pervious concrete has introduced in rural road as a road pavement material. Pervious concrete as a paving material has seen renewed interest due to its ability to allow waterto flow through itself to recharge groundwater level and minimize storm water runoff. This introduction topervious concrete pavements reviews its applications and engineering properties, including environmentalbenefits, structural properties, and durability.In rural area cost consideration is the primary factor which must be kept in mind. So that in rural areas costly storm water management practices is not applicable. Pervious concrete pavement is unique and effective means to meet growing environmental demands. By capturing rainwater and allowing it to seep into the ground. This pavement technology createsmore efficient land use by eliminating the need for retention ponds, swell, and other costly stormwater management devices.
