Pervious concrete pavement is a unique and effective means to address important environmental issues and support green, sustainable growth.
By capturing storm water and allowing it to seep into the ground, porous concrete is instrumental in recharging groundwater, reducing storm water runoff, and meeting U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) storm water regulations. In fact, the use of pervious concrete is among the Best Management Practices (BMPs) recommended by the EPA -- and by other agencies and geotechnical engineers across the country -- for the management of storm water runoff on a regional and local basis.
This pavement technology creates more efficient land use by eliminating the need for retention ponds, swales, and other storm water management devices. In doing so, pervious concrete has the ability to lower overall project costs on a first-cost basis.
Pervious Concrete Project
On this particular project the thickness of the Pervious Concrete Pavement was 8". here you can see how we prep the road for paving, we'll show before, during and after photos.
