Pervious concrete is one of the hottest topics in the world of land development today. Pervious concrete pavement is a unique and effective means to address important environmental issues and support green, sustainable growth. By capturing stormwater and allowing it to seep into the ground, porous concrete is instrumental in recharging groundwater and reducing stormwater runoff. Pervious concrete is traditionally used in parking lots, areas with light traffic, residential streets, and pedestrian walkways.
