The effect of varying runoff on a clogged permeable surface was analysed using a specifically designed laboratory rig consisting of a variable gradient testing frame, a rain simulator and water collecting chambers. The results indicate that the apparatus can be used successfully to test the runoff resistance of concrete blocks in permeable surfaces. The results indicate that a surface at 2% gradient that is clogged with crushed construction debris still permits significant levels of infiltration.
