Climate change means that incidences of 'extreme weather' are becoming commonplace. Increasingly frequent bouts of heavy rainfall should be anticipated as the norm rather than the exception, and in conjunction with our increased rate of urban development, this means that risk of flooding is rapidly increasing. Pervious concrete allows the water to percolate through the concrete into the sub-base and recharge the underground water level. Voids within the pervious concrete should be

The advantages of pervious concrete can be classified into 3 basic categories: environmental, safety and economics. Pervious concrete pavement is a unique and effective means to meet growing environmental demands. By capturing rainwater and allowing it to seep into the ground, pervious concrete is instrumental in recharging groundwater, reducing stormwater runoff. Although not a new technology (it was first used in 1852), pervious concrete is receiving renewed interest.
