This paper describes the development of an oil interceptor system, which has been incorporated within a pervious surface construction. Experiments were undertaken to assess how the system retained pollutants under simulated worse credible pollution and rainfall events; to compare the performance of a traditionally constructed design with the new system; and how the system can be utilised as an aerobic bioreactor for oil degradation. The results demonstrated that both direct infiltration devices, constructed on site from traditional materials, and systems designed to be used as pre-fabricated units based on state of the art storage elements can effectively contain hydrocarbons and provide useful level of attenuation and retention.
