The built environment has grown rapidly over the last 10 years in India, resulting in large areas of land being paved over with impermeable materials. Over the same period of time the number of occasions that the India experiences three, or more, consecutive days of heavy rainfall has increased by 40%. With climate change predicted to lead to increasingly warmer and wetter weather conditions, rainfall is likely to continue to rise in many states of India, and mainly in Uttarakhand. As a result, many experts believe the kind of wide-scale flooding seen in 2013 and in every year during the monsoon (June –September) generally water logging at road problem is seen in plane areas of Uttarakhand such as in Roorkee, Udham Singh Nagar, Haridwar, etc. permeable pavement is a simple way to control runoff water and to manage it. Bitumen or porous asphalt is the bounding material which is used by us in top most layer of permeable pavement. Through this paper we suggest the best way to reduce these problems and the method for laying of permeable paving road
