Permeable Pervious Concrete: A Sustainable Solution for Stormwater Management.

Pervious concrete is a type of concrete that has a porous or permeable surface, which allows water to pass through it and be absorbed into the ground below. This characteristic makes pervious concrete a sustainable solution for stormwater management, as it can effectively mitigate the negative effects of stormwater runoff.

The permeable surface of pervious concrete is achieved through the use of a specific mix design that includes a reduced amount of fine aggregate, resulting in larger voids in the material. These voids allow water to flow through the concrete and into the ground below, where it can be naturally filtered and recharged into the groundwater system.
