Abstract: The subject of this thesis was to examine the possibility of further increasing the environmental benefits of an already existing environmentally friendly paving material, pervious concrete. This was attempted by replacing virgin aggregate with recycled concrete aggregate and also replacing portions of the Portland cement with industrial waste mineral admixtures, fly ash class F and granulated blast furnace slag. Twelve pervious concrete mixes were designed with varying recycled concrete aggregate sizes and cementitious material blends. Three cylinders were poured per mix, each compacted by either rodding, vibration, or customized standard proctor method. Total of 36 samples were poured, cured, and tested. Tests were performed for Specific Gravity, Porosity (%), Permeability (in/s), and Compressive Strength (psi). The 36 samples tested in this thesis were characterized by the following properties: 23.3 to 35.1% porosity, 0.5 to 1.9 in/s permeability, and 627 psi to 1325 psi compressive strength. Such results are consistent with properties collected from studies conducted on pervious concrete made with conventional aggregate. Therefore, demonstrating that recycled concrete aggregate and mineral admixtures can be successfully used in the production of pervious concrete
