Pervious concrete pavement is a relatively new technology that significantly contributes to sustainability. By providing a pass-through for storm water, pervious concrete reduces or eliminates the need for costly and land-consuming drainage ponds. The voids in the concrete pavement allow the water to drain back into the ground very quickly,
Although the maintenance of this product can be a hefty task in the southwest where it rains very little and dust is prevalent, pervious concrete is a great solution for a smaller lot where a drainage pond couldn't fit. When placed properly, it provides the same longevity as traditional pavements in lower traffic areas such as parking lots, side walks, and bike paths.
