Pervious Parking at the YMCA in Los Angeles

In 2012 we installed i900 sq. ft. of pervious concrete around the back of the YMCA on 28th Street in Los Angeles. After 5 years it is still holding up well. You can see there have been a few drips from parked cars, which means it is getting used!

The other good news about those oil drips is that they are not contributing to stormwater pollution - pervious concrete provides a habitat for microbes that break down hydrocarbon-based pollutants. As the first filter that water hits on its way back into the aquifer, pervious concrete plays an integral role in a healthy developed watershed.
