Pervious Concrete

Definition: concrete containing little, if any, fine aggregate that results in sufficient voids to allow air and water to pass easily from the surface to underlying layers.- ACI Concrete Terminology

Pervious concrete typically describes a near-zero-slump, open-graded material consisting of portland cement, coarse aggregate, little or no fine aggregate, admixtures, and water. The combination of these ingredients will produce a hardened material with connected pores that allow water to pass through easily. Pervious concrete is widely recognized as a sustainable building material, as it reduces storm water runoff, improves storm water quality, may recharge groundwater supplies, and can reduce the impact of the urban heat island effect.
