PaveDrain Instead of Ponds

Aaron Fisher | April 30, 2022

Your retention basins are costing you money

  • Space = money. If you are developing or redeveloping a property, space is money. Using some of this valuable space to address stormwater is an obvious waste of space.
  • Pipes, drains, and other stormwater assets cost money to install and must be maintained.
  • Retention basins require maintenance. Every few years they need to be dredged.

PaveDrain permeable pavement is the ideal solution to address your stormwater needs and reclaim the land you used for your stormwater management ponds.

The rain will fall, and when it falls on pavement the rain will run off and pond. Detention ponds, which collect the water and stores it until exfiltrates (read: disappears) are simple solution developed to address this challenge. However, just because a solution is simple doesn’t mean it’s the best or event the cheapest.

Make money with PaveDrain

PaveDrain permeable pavement is a low to no maintenance solution that addresses the rainwater challenge by addressing the root cause of this problem. By making pavement do more, you can avoid the challenge of runoff that leads many to install retention ponds.

PaveDrain is unique in that it can handle heavy truck traffic. It can also handle (1,000’s) thousands of inches of water an hour. Finally, it’s a decentralized solution—install in critical (low-lying areas) to address ponding and sheet flow—preventing rain water from ever becoming a big problem.

Converting 10%-20% of the impermeable cover into PaveDrain can address the stormwater issue within the existing pavement footprint without further limiting design. Or if your pond is approaching the end of its lifetime and requiring a dredging, just overlay it with a PaveDrain system.

So no matter whether your pond is a detention basin, retarding basin, retention basin, wet pond, wet detention basin, or stormwater management pond, ask yourself could I lease that space or use a few extra parking spaces? If so, convert your pond to PaveDrain today.
