Permeable Pavements (or Porous Pavement Systems)

Permeable Pavements (or Porous Pavement Systems)

Impervious walkways and driveways can be removed and replaced with permeable paving such as “pavers”. Pavers are brick-like materials that are manufactured in a variety of shapes. Pavers fit together like tiles and are set with small gaps between them, creating grooves for water to infiltrate the soil beneath. Other materials such as broken pieces of recycled concrete can be used. Paved walkways can also be removed and replaced with gravel or mulch.
