PICP (Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavers) offers 7 major reasons…
The concerns………
  •  Stormwater impact and flooding
  • Traffic calming—Public Safety
  • Street durability and cost effectiveness
  • Carbon footprint and the environmental sustainability of paving material
  • Sidewalk repair expense due to tree root heaving on cement sidewalks
  • Heavy metal impact from streets that wash into gutter/storm drains and then into waterways
  • Urban design and federal requirements
The best answer………………..Hydro-Flo Permeable Pavers
  • Provide a durable, semi-smooth surface…not slippery and ADA compliant
  • Creates long term cost benefits….50-100 year lifespan
  • Reduces carbon footprint
  • Limits peak stormwater discharge and improve water quality of any runoff
  • Creates the potential to mitigate street sweeping requirements and improve runoff water quality
  • Decreases sidewalk cement heaving
  • Reduces solar heat gain because of light surface color and permeable material
  • Enable traffic calming
  • Provides aesthetic improvements
