The Effects of Urban Development

Traditional urban construction has diverted rainwater into storm sewers and ultimately into streams, rivers and lakes. This diversion of rainwater has resulted in over-taxed sewer systems, as well as chemically and thermally polluted waters.

The Benefits of Permeable Pavements

·Reduces storm water load

·Eliminates thermal pollution of streams and rivers.

·Naturally filters contaminants and replenishes the water table

·Enables rainwater to be easily harvested
