Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavers

Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavers (PICP) & Previous Concrete (PC) are a cost-effective Stormwater Control Measure (SCM) or Best Management Practice (BMP) that can beautify your property. In fact, PICP and PC can reduce Stormwater run-off by storing water in void space under the pavement to help maximize the peak discharge rate.  Permeable Pavements receive nutrient credits for Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), and Total Suspended Solids (TSS) in North Carolina and other municipalities.

Permeable Pavements may also receive 100% impervious coverage credit; therefore, the covered area may not count towards the site’s Built Upon Area (BUA) according North Carolina Division of Environmental Quality stormwater regulations.

By eliminating a conventional stormwater  drain pipes & drop inlets, allows stormwater to seep through the entire pavement surface.  One may be able to realize cost savings by eliminating expensive conveyance and treatment systems. Permeable pavements are a sustainable pavement surface that should increase the value of your property or home.

Sustainability is more than a buzzword these days. Eco-conscious design and construction are on the minds of just about everyone, but did you know that your pavement system can have a significant impact on the environment? Permeable interlocking concrete pavers improve runoff management while also reducing pollutants and recharging groundwater. This is in addition to reducing erosion and potential flooding.

How Does PICP Work?

Permeable interlocking concrete pavers work thanks to the advanced, interlocking system. The spaces between the pavers are filled with small stones that allow water to permeate through the pavement and back into the ground. Thanks to the 100% surface permeability of the paver joints, PICP is both highly effective and efficient. This process further filters the water by removing excess nitrogen and other harmful pollutants that can harm the environment. As a result, PICP helps homeowners and businesses stay in compliance with state and federal regulations regarding runoff and stormwater management.
