Pervious Concrete

Living on Cape Cod brings a lot of different weather conditions from the joys of the summer sun to the rain and snow of the spring and winter that can create quite a mess in your driveway! We’ve got the answer for you…….Pervious Concrete!

Pervious concrete is a special type of concrete that is very porous that allows water from precipitation and other sources to pass directly thorough, therefor reducing the runoff and allowing groundwater to drain back into the ground. Pervious concrete can be used in parking areas, streets and walkways.

The proper utilization of pervious concrete is a recognized Best Management Practice by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for providing first flush pollution control and storm water management. As regulations further limit storm water runoff, it is becoming more expensive for property owners to develop real estate, due to the size and expense of the necessary drainage systems. Pervious concrete reduces the runoff from paved areas, which reduces the need for separate storm water retention ponds and allows the use of smaller capacity storm sewers. This allows property owners to develop a larger area of available property at a lower cost. Pervious concrete also naturally filters storm water and can reduce pollutant loads entering into streams, ponds and rivers.

Maintenance of pervious concrete is highly recommended and should occur regularly. Cleaning can be accomplished through wetting the surface of the concrete and vacuum sweeping. GFM Enterprises can easily help you with a simple maintenance vacuuming to allow you to get the most out of your investment in pervious concrete.
