Day-to-day problem arises due to logging of water on pavements due to improper drainage systems and impermeable surface at the time of heavy rainfall. One of the beneficial methods of removing these constraints is using pervious concrete either as pavement or on the sides of pavement. A brief literature study to gain high-strength and high-permeable concrete is carried to improve application of pervious concrete in construction. The goal of using recycled coarse aggregates is to reuse hardened concrete for economical construction and decrease environmental issues with its different applications. Pervious concrete which is not conventionally used for construction can be used because of its feasible strength and permeability which can help in decreasing issues of drainage systems and environmental threats.
