Pervious concrete is very similar to traditional concrete
but it is porous and does not produce runoff. Permeable
pavement systems allow stormwater to infiltrate which
helps a project mimic the predevelopment hydrologic
function. This is important for groundwater recharge,
health of vegetation, pollution control, flood management, etc. Because of its light color, pervious concrete also reduces the “heat island” effect and reduces night time lighting needs. These are just a few of the many benefits of permeable paving systems. PRDEI has been privileged to take part in over a dozen successful installations of pervious concrete for Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, Placer County, the Town of Truckee and several private clients. We also provide design for a variety of permeable paving systems using vegetated pavers such as TurfStone TM and others.
