This paper contains the introductory remarks presented by the workshop chairman at five workshops on water in pavements held by the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in 1973. The chairman discusses the Highway Research Board's concern over a lack of consensus on drainage of roadways. In response to this concern, the FHWA designed these workshops to be held at a relatively local level as a dialogue to determine the state-of-the-practice with regard to the drainage of roadways, hoping to close the gap between state-of-the-practice, state-of-the-art, and state-of-the-knowledge in this important area of pavement design, construction, and maintenance.
