Permeable driveway pavers can help alleviate all manner of groundwater and stormwater issues while safeguarding water quality and protecting against the infiltration of pollutants. They allow water to permeate directly into the ground where it is filtered before finding its way into our water system. In addition, permeable pavers can reduce runoff and soil erosion. The use of permeable interlocking concrete pavers or permeable pavement is becoming much more common as they are becoming mandatory in many municipalities for these very reasons and many companies are using them when seeking higher LEED certifications and the tax breaks they bring.
If stormwater management has become a problem on your property are PICPs the answer? PICPs (permeable interlocking concrete pavement) are specially engineered system of pavers that allow water to permeate into the soil instead of turning into runoff. For our most common permeable pavers, check out our Holland Herringbone, Eco-Priora, Uni Ecoloc, and Uni-Eco-Stone pavers. Another more rugged permeable option is Turfstone where the grid-like design allows greenery to grow through them.
