The dataset currently available comprises the rate of heavy metal removal by pervious concrete incorporation seashell and palm oil kernel shells from stormwater. Stormwater runoff was collected from commercial area at Taman University, Skudai, Johor, Malaysia. The stormwater sample underwent filtration and was preserved in high-density polyethylene (HDPE) bottles at a temperature of 4°C for use as the incoming water. The outgoing water, referred to as effluent, was obtained from tests performed on pervious concrete samples after a curing period of 28 days. The previous concrete mixes were created with a water-to-binder ratio (w/b ratio) of 32% and a sand ratio of 10%, respectively, three palm oil kernel shell and seashell contents, namely, 0, 25 and 50% as coarse aggregate replacement, two median particle sizes of both palm oil kernel shell and seashell, namely (6.3-9.5 mm) and (4.75-6.3 mm. Heavy metal analyses were measured on influent and effluent by a Perkin Elmer ELAN 6100 Series Inductive Coupled Plasma–Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS). The available datasets are raw and analyzed data.
