It is estimated that the United States has approximately 61,000 square miles of paved roads and parking lots. With such an astounding number of paved areas, it only makes sense that there is going to be a substantial impact made on the environment by these areas. It also makes sense that with such a great amount of our nation’s surface area devoted to paving, that we work diligently to find and implement more sustainable and less negatively impactful techniques and materials to use for paving. One such thing that is being used more and more is permeable paving, sometimes also called permeable pavers. Permeable paving, in short, is the use of specialized techniques or materials that allow for on-site filtration of stormwater through the surface of paved areas. Permeable paving allows for large particulate debris, sediment and heavy metals to be trapped on the surface or in the substrata layers of the paving materials, leaving a the filtered water to flow through the soil and subsequent layers below the pavement and to replenish our groundwater supply. The groundwater supply level is essential to our drinking water supply, as well as to impede further stream erosion and to also help replenish our surface water levels–the level of the streams, creeks, lakes, rivers, and oceans. The benefits of permeable paving over traditional, non-permeable paving are qualitatively greater. In urban areas the use of permeable paving has even shown an increase in tree coverage due to the fact that the substructure of permeable paving allows for tree roots to have enough room to grow to their full size.
With the benefits to the environment being so profound with the use of permeable paving, it has become more and more the go-to method for many local governments and business owners to use in new paving projects, as well as in the reconstruction and replacement of existing paved areas. While the benefits of permeable paving are exponentially better than other paving methods for a great deal of projects, the key to maintaining the benefits is to make certain that proper care and maintenance is given to your permeable paving.
