Permeable Paving

Permeable paving is a “green” option of paving, which allows water to drain through its surface rather than just running off into a storm water system.

Permeable pavements are alternative paving surfaces that allow stormwater run-off to filter through voids in the pavement surface into an underlying stone reservoir, where it is temporarily stored or infiltrated.

Permeable paving reduces the concentration of pollutants either by trapping it in the pavement or soil, or biologically – plants that grow in between grass block pavers trap and store pollutants. Furthermore, they cool down the temperature of urban run-off, reducing the stress and impact on the stream or lake environment. By controlling the run-off at the source, such as a parking lot, permeable paving can also reduce the need for or the required size of a regional wet detention pond, which saves money and effort.
