Some of the benefits of Perma pave are that it is less costly to repair, eliminates pollutants and contaminants from water drain off, and relieves flooding in flood prone areas. When used in low to moderate traffic areas, a small section can be repaired in a relatively short period of time, thereby reducing the manpower and supplies needed to make necessary repairs. The permeable paver's surface allows water to flow through it freely, therefore eliminating flooding in city streets and roadways.
The free flowing water is filtered through the top permeable paver's layer and drains into a bedding of sand or pebbles to filter even more pollutants and contaminants from the water. This promotes growth in trees and flower beds surrounding the Perma pave. In addition to these benefits, it also cleans the water that drains into the natural waterways of our cities. Perma pave used in place of storm drains throughout a city helps remove the oils, fuels and other contaminants that are normally picked up by water on its way through the city streets.
These contaminants can kill not only vegetation throughout the city, but wildlife that drinks from the streams and rivers which is fed by this drainage fallout. Many wildlife species are in danger of becoming extinct due to their short life cycle. This is in part due to the pollution and contaminants that are introduced into the water systems they feed from. Permeable pavers eliminate these and provide only clean water to be distributed into the water systems. This could go a long way in protecting our wildlife throughout the world.
Perma pave is so versatile that it can be utilized for commercial use as well as residential use. This means that every citizen around the world can make a difference in the environment by implementing permeable pavers in their driveways and pathways around their homes. By doing so, they are helping the environment, wildlife and promoting safety in their own back yards. The benefits of this type of pavement is superior to asphalt and concrete pavements. Asphalt and concrete allow contaminants to be distributed into waterways therefore continuing the pollution that has become so rampant throughout the world.
