Today’s increasingly stringent stormwater regulations continue to create the need for stormwater management on smaller sites. The preferred method is to retain the stormwater onsite rather than having it move offsite through overland flow or into storm sewers. Typical solutions—retention or detention ponds—are expensive to construct, occupy valuable land, require significant maintenance, can be safety hazards and are unattractive nuisances. An alternative solution is to reduce the amount of impermeable surface on the site. Hard-surface porous pavements are quite expensive and can be very difficult and time consuming to install, while vegetated systems are limited to occasional traffic. GEOPAVE aggregate porous pavements offer a low-cost, easy to install, porous surface that is suitable for daily use.
