Permeable Pavers

PERMEABLE PAVERS

So much more than just a paver. The purpose of permeable pavers is to control stormwater runoff while accommodating pedestrians, parking and traffic. Permeable pavement is a best management practice that captures stormwater through voids in the pavement surface and filters water through an underlying aggregate reservoir. The reservoir typically allows the water to infiltrate into the soil subgrade.

Permeable pavers are taking urban developments by storm where the need to expand parking areas is hindered by lack of space for stormwater management systems. Permeable pavement is also useful in new developments with limited space where land costs are high, and when nutrient reductions or green building certification programs are desired.”

The goal is to control stormwater at the source, reduce runoff and improve water quality by filtering pollutants in the substrata layers. Although some porous paving materials appear nearly indistinguishable from nonporous materials, their environmental effects are qualitatively different. Permeable interlocking concrete pavement (PICP) consists of manufactured concrete units that reduce stormwater runoff volume, rate, and pollutants. The impervious units are designed with small openings that create permeable joints. The openings typically comprise 5% to 15% of the paver surface area and are filled with highly permeable, small-sized aggregates. The joints allow stormwater to enter a crushed stone aggregate bedding layer and base that supports the pavers while providing storage and runoff treatment. PICPs are highly attractive, durable, easily repaired, require low maintenance, and can withstand heavy vehicle loads. PICP significantly reduces the total amount of impervious surface and runoff.”

Provides a sustainable ecological solutions & meets EPA requirements for onsite stormwater management
Intrastructure is reduced as permeable pavers can eliminate the need for conventional stormwater retention ponds
Contributes toward LEED NC-2009 and LID credits. Captures & treats stormwater nutrient, metal, & oil loadings
Polution is reduced through less cleared land, less stormwater runoff and the reduction of the Heat Island Effect.
