All pathways and paving around the EcoCenter are made of permeable materials that permit the movement of stormwater through their surfaces into the ground below.  This is especially important at the EcoCenter since there is no tie-in to the City’s sewer system.  All water that falls on the site is either captured or made to infiltrate into the ground.  In addition to reducing runoff that could lead to erosion, porous surfaces can improve water quality by filtering and trapping pollutants in its sublayers.  More text  and photos coming soon.
