cold mix

Does anyone have any articles, etc. on the permeability of asphalt cold mix as opposed to hot mix.  We have a torts suit where it is alleged that using the cold mix to repair a sinkhole is improper and allows water in where it hits the concrete plug travels laterally and creates another sinkhole (nice trick! - speculative as hell!)

Any help will be appreciated

RE: cold mix

I am not so sure, try to read asphalt manual MS 19.

RE: cold mix

The way I understand it, cold mix is for temporary/emergency fixes.
It probably does not knead as good as hot mix w/ tack coat.
