Chuck’s Produce and Street Market is an independent family-owned market catering to the people of the Vancouver, Washington area. Committed to offering fresh and local products, Chuck’s Produce and Street Market places emphasis on offering organic goods in a healthy, family-oriented environment.

When Chuck’s decided to open a second location, they wanted to implement practices aligned with their company motto, “You never go wrong doing the right thing”. With an adjacent Critical Aquifer Recharge Area that discharged storm water to a nearby fish-bearing stream, Chuck’s Produce knew contributing to a greener environment was the right thing to do in alignment with offering organic products. This started the exploration of using an interlocking permeable pavement system.

With the help of Eastern States Paving, Lenity Architects (Architect/Landscape Architect), AKS Engineering, and Colson & Colson (General Contractor) collaborated to install almost 29,000 square feet of permeable interlocking concrete pavers in parking stalls and sidewalks at Chuck’s Produce and Market.

Products Used

  • Permeable Pavers

Even in a 100-year storm event in December 2008, the paver system allowed all the stormwater to infiltrate, reducing the risk of a sewer overflow into nearbay Elliott Bay.

Advice:

“One of the main benefits of a paver driveway is that it will not crack because of the flexibility the joints between each paver provide. Additionally, repairs are simple because specific areas can be targeted without having to redo the entire drive.”
