Worldwide a great research is currently being conducted on the storm water management in concrete. Concrete is an artificial stone-like material used for various structural purposes. The binding material cement and various aggregates are made by through mixing of stone chips, recycled aggregate, etc… with water and allowing the mixture to harden by hydration. Number of research has been done to find an alternate material in concrete. The thirsty concrete is also called as pervious concrete, Permeable concrete, No fines concrete and Porous pavement. This concrete is mainly used in the places where the water is stagnant. The Main use of the thirsty concrete is to transfer the stagnant water from the top surface to the ground surface (Soil). During rainy seasons the water is stagnant at one place. Sometimes, there is no proper management practice available. To overcome these defects the thirsty concrete is used. This concrete is used as a paving material due to its efficient to the water is allowed to pass through itself to maintain groundwater level and storm water runoff is minimized. It will help to increase the low ground water level and agricultural problems. In this thirsty concrete we are planned to use the recycled aggregates instead of the normal aggregates and we are going to do the probe on the thirsty concrete with normal aggregate and the thirsty concrete with recycled aggregates. A concrete mix ratio of 1:3 was obtained as per BIS method for our experimental work. Water cement ratio 0.35 has been adopted and performance of concrete with treated normal and recycled aggregate is investigated.
