Permeable Pavers

Permeable pavers, also known as permeable interlocking concrete pavements (PICP), are installed with layers of varying-sized stone or aggregate underneath that filter and direct stormwater to underground aquifers. Belgard permeable pavers mimic the way natural land absorbs water. With permeable concrete pavers, any rain that falls on your patio, walkway or driveway seeps back into the ground, reducing the burden on storm drains. A permeable paver system can even be designed to harvest and recycle rainwater.


  • Reduce water demand by placing pavers over grassed areas or harvesting and recycling water
  • Reduce erosion where vegetation is dry or doesn’t grow
  • Eliminate standing water here mosquitos can breed and algae or mold can grow
  • Eliminate risk of evaporation of standing water and above-ground water storage
  • Permeable pavers for driveways can eliminate water accumulation and reduce ice accumulation to improve vehicular safety


  • Infiltrate water back into the ground to recharge local groundwater supplies
  • Maintain base flows in waterways to ensure ecosystems are self-sustaining
  • Act as filter to improve local water quality
  • Eliminate risk of evaporation of standing water and above-ground water storage
  • Light paver colors are highly reflective and reduce heat island effect
  • Reduce water use for landscaping


  • Contribute to environmental and stormwater management best practices, including LEED credits
  • Lead to cost savings by vastly reducing or even eliminating storm water infrastructure components like pipes, detention basins and storm drains
  • Subsurface water storage creates increased surface space on which to develop roads, driveways, parking areas, public spaces, houses and other revenue-generating structures
