Pervious concrete soaks up water, eliminating the need for conventional storm water detention systems. Pervious concrete is a two-part system, consisting of the concrete pavement and a coarse gravel retention layer for storm water storage. Using pervious concrete allows the development to exceed local storm water management regulations by eliminating untreated storm water and creating a zero runoff site. It also allows for direct recharge of rain water to ground water.
