Pervious concrete is the construction material that has pores that can be penetrate by water. Due to voids present in concrete it used to absorb runoff from the surface and simultaneously increase soil water content. With applied to pavement or low traffic road like open parking areas in city, water runoff from the surface is expected to absorb into the soil and can be reduced clearance of water discharging into drainage channel or allow to percolate into the soil for the purpose of increase water table. Porous concrete pavements are more suitable than other conventional concrete especially in parking lots, sidewalks and driveways to control surface runoff. It also requires low cost as compare to conventional concrete and also properly manage rainwater harvesting. then Utilization of that modify concrete on actual site in Mumbai region study the durability
