I almost killed myself in the parking lot

The runoff problem:
1.                                                               2.















Swale ^

Water Runs off Parking Lots ~

  • Asphalt with no swale--51% 
  • Asphalt with swale--34% 
  • Permeable pavement - with swale--10%


An innovative  improvement.......


POROUS PAVEMENT !


YUP!  The water collected from the AC parking lots, once filtered, is being reused!







Note: porous pavement requires special care.
