Just an FYI to all - You may want to start re-thinking the way your base material is laid down for any permeable pavement systems that you are installing. I have been involved in helping my company create a new limestone/aggregate product line that addresses permeable pavement systems. The product is designed to maximize the porosity of the base material while not degrading the structural integrity of the system. The new line is called "VECO". Please check it out and pass it along to whomever you wish (just trying to get the word out)----> www.vulcaninnovations.com

Vulcan Materials will also assist you in obtaining LEED credits if you were to use this product within in your designs/buildings.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask away.
