Over 345,000 square feet of Eco-Optiloc permeable pavers supplied by Unilock Ohio was utilized for parking lots and connector roadways at Cleveland Clinic's new hospital in Avon, Ohio, which is featured in the November/December issue of Stormwater Magazine. The site contains EPA-protected wetlands and the Eco-Optiloc pavers were recommended by the project designers to provide the most effective stormwater management for the site and come in at a lower initial cost than other systems that were considered.

"From both an environmental viewpoint, as well as aesthetics, we are very pleased with our investment in, what has turned out to be, a very large permeable paver parking lot," said Brian Smith, Director of Strategic Project Development for Cleveland Clinic.

ASCE Releases Committee Report on Permeable Pavements

After more than five years of work, a design guidance manual on Permeable Pavements has been published. It was sponsored by the Low Impact Development Committee of the Urban Water Resources Research Council of the Environmental and Water Resources Institute of ASCE. This is a comprehensive guide to permeable pavements for engineers, planners, landscape architects, municipalities, transportation agencies, regulatory agencies, and property owners planning to implement this best management practice for stormwater and urban runoff.

Permeable pavements are considered a green infrastructure practice that offer many environmental benefits, from reduced stormwater runoff and improved water quality to better site design and enhanced safety of paved surfaces. This book offers a detailed overview of the typical permeable pavement systems and includes fact sheets, checklists, and real life case studies that help you to successfully incorporate this highly effective stormwater management system into your design projects. UNI-GROUP U.S.A.'s technical director, Harald von Langsdorff was a contributor on this project.

Check out this dramatic Eco-Priora permeable paver project from Unilock Chicago at Loyola University. The new plaza was designed to allow pedestrians and bicyclists safe passage between the southern areas of the school, which includes the new Institute of Environmental Sustainability building and several student dormitories, and the main campus. The plaza represents a 39,000 square-foot expansion of Loyola’s Lake Shore Campus and builds upon the University’s commitment to sustainability by featuring a new storm water management system, Eco-Priora permeable interlocking pavers, native plantings, and a meadow living-learning laboratory for students and visitors.

New Green Infrastructure Guide

A new report released by U.S. EPA’s Office of Sustainable Communities titled, Enhancing Sustainable Communities With Green Infrastructure: A guide to help communities better manage stormwater while achieving other environmental, public health, social, and economic benefits, aims to help local governments, water utilities, nonprofit organizations, neighborhood groups, and other stakeholders integrate green infrastructure strategies into plans that can transform their communities. Many communities that want to use green infrastructure approaches face technical, regulatory, financial, and institutional obstacles that limit widespread implementation. This report serves as a guide to develop a plan that can overcome these obstacles for neighborhoods, towns, cities, and regions of all sizes. It also can help stakeholders create a vision for how green infrastructure can enhance their communities beyond reducing stormwater runoff, and directs readers to other resources that provide more detailed information that can be tailored to communities’ particular climate, goals, and circumstances.
