Utilizing permeable pavers provides a multitude of benefits to your project. Not only are they a low maintenance, cost-effective product, but they also help aid stormwater management, reduce runoff, and decrease flooding risks while providing enhanced aesthetics.
These pavers are installed over various layers of open graded stone that allow stormwater to infiltrate on-site and aid in restoration of groundwater aquifers instead of inundating our already overloaded storm systems. A permeable paving system also helps protect water quality, reduces flooding potential, and decreases stream bank erosion.
In addition, to their ecological benefits, there are also tax rebates available when utilizing permeable paver systems. Several municipalities as well as local DNR offer various incentives for installing permeable systems instead of impermeable surfaces, especially in watershed areas. This can include new construction projects and/or the restoration of existing sites. Be sure to check with your local municipality for more details.
