Name:

Water Pervious Concrete

Description:

A special type of concrete that allows for water to pass through, reducing runoff and allowing for groundwater recharge.

Advantages:

A stormwater infrastructure that utilizes pervious concrete is great for the environment, speeds the development process, and is more profitable for the developer!

  • Eliminates untreated storm water and creates zero runoff
  • Directly recharges groundwater
  • Mitigates “first flush” pollution
  • Protects streams, watersheds, and ecosystems
  • Mimics the drainage and filtration of bioswales and natural soils
  • Reduces surface temperatures and heat island effects
  • Provides a higher albedo surface reflectivity index (0.35 or higher)
  • Eliminates need for expensive collection and detention systems
