Though porous paving is a technology whereby asphalt pavement drains water through it is over 30 years old, it is becoming more prevalent as townships deal with flooding and storm water drainage issues.
Though porous pavement may not be suitable in every location, it can serve a valuable purpose for areas that get flooded easily (like the area near Lake George, as cited in the first link above). And with townships and cities looking to improve upon their city infrastructure, we anticipate porous paving will gain interest amongst city planners in years ahead.
