|Permeable pavement excavation and stone subgrade|
In spring of 2016, the Painesville Township Fire Station #3 parking lot was renovated and expanded using 1,482 square feet of permeable pavement, a technology that will help to clean and reduce stormwater runoff to Red Creek, the Grand River and Lake Erie. The permeable pavement helps the parking lot behave more like a natural landscape. This keeps rainwater out of storm sewers, prevents sewer backups and flooding, and reduces pollution that would otherwise flow to unprotected waterways.
