when stormwater is allowed to infiltrate back into the ground, it is cleaned and
treated naturally by percolating through the soil. Both permeable pavers, which are hard surface units typically
made of concrete, and pervious concrete, which is a special mix of concrete with
open pores that allows water to readily flow through it, will allow stormwater
even from a heavy downpour to travel into the ground where it will be cleaned as
it recharges the water table.

Chicago’s U.S. Cellular Field, the home of the Chicago White Sox, is also
now home to the largest installation of permeable pavers in the country.
In addition to being better for the environment, the permeable pavers also saved money for the owner.
