POROUS PAVEMENT

Unlike traditional concrete and asphalt, this specially designed material helps manage water where it falls, soaking rain and melting snow into the ground.  Layers of stone or filter media below the surface create storage space for water that can also be captured and reused to save money on water bills.  Porous pavement comes in concrete, asphalt and paver systems.
