POROUS PAVEMENT

Porous Pavement

Porous pavement allows stormwater and snow melt to pass through voids in the paved surface and infiltrate into the subbase. This type of drainage allows for less chance of ice on the roads to to quicker dispersal time. Porous pavement may be constructed from four basic material types:

  1. Asphalt
  2. Concrete
  3. Paver Blocks
  4. Plastic Grid Systems
