WHEN RAIN OR SNOWMELT MOVES OVER TRADITIONAL ASPHALT AND CONCRETE, IT PICKS UP AND CARRIES POLLUTANTS INTO LAKES, RIVERS AND WETLANDS. THESE POLLUTANTS HARM DRINKING WATER, RECREATION, FISHERIES AND WILDLIFE.

ONE WAY TO CURB RUNOFF AND REDUCE WATER POLLUTION IS WITH PERMEABLE INTERLOCKING CONCRETE PAVEMENT. IT CAN REDUCE SURFACE RUNOFF AS MUCH AS ONE HUNDRED PERCENT. JOINTS BETWEEN THE SOLID PAVERS ARE FILLED WITH SMALL STONES. THESE TAKE IN THE RUNOFF, ALLOWING IT TO FILTER THROUGH THE PAVEMENT BASE AND INFILTRATE INTO THE SOIL BENEATH.

PERMEABLE PAVEMENT IS USED FOR COMMERCIAL PARKING LOTS AND LOW-SPEED ROADS, COMMERCIAL AND RESIDENTIAL DRIVEWAYS, PATIOS AND WALKWAYS. THE PAVING UNITS COME IN A RANGE OF SHAPES, COLORS, TEXTURES AND PATTERNS TO COMPLEMENT THE ARCHITECTURE AND NEIGHBORHOOD CHARACTER. THE PAVEMENT DOES NOT HEAVE IN COLD CLIMATES AND RESISTS DAMAGE FROM DEICING MATERIALS.

PERMEABLE INTERLOCKING CONCRETE NOT ONLY PROTECTS THE ENVIRONMENT, IT LOOKS GOOD WHILE DOING IT. LEARN MORE AT ICPI.ORG.
