Pervious Pavers

Pervious pavers allow water to to infiltrate through the joints in the pavers, and is stored in void space underneath the paver surface, where it is then filtered back into the soil. Just like pavement, the pavers allow people to walk, drive and park on them, but unlike impervious pavement, they can provide the environmental benefit of stormwater treatment and capture.
