Unilock Intro to Permeable Pavers
Introduction to Permeable Pavers (Level 1):
This presentation will inspire architects, engineers, landscape architects, developers and municipal agencies to make permeable interlocking concrete pavers the first choice for sustainable, stormwater solutions. Permeable pavers are a recommended Best Management Practice under the EPA's NPDES requirements. They are also a recommended construction practice under Low Impact Development and LEED guidelines in addition to other benefits. Originally, concrete pavers were designed for heavy-duty applications, which make them a perfect and superior solution for streets, roads, parking lots and even plazas and sidewalks. Permeable pavers allow water infiltration between units, not through the paver themselves. This is a huge advantage over other porous materials because the paver composite is not changed. There is also an aesthetic quality to pavers because they are made in several different shapes, colors and textures. All of these options and benefits will be explored.

Learning Objectives
• Identify benefits and opportunities for permeable pavers
• Analyze the goals and criteria for using a permeable paver system
• List permeable paver materials and be able to design different solutions
• Evaluate and compare permeable pavers to other traditional storm systems
• Understand different installation procedures for permeable pavers
