What is porous concrete?

Pervious concrete (also called porous concrete) is a special type of concrete with a high porosity used for concrete flatwork applications that allows water from precipitation and other sources to pass directly through, thereby reducing runoff from the site. Pervious concrete may cost up to 25% more to install than conventional concrete, but when lifecycle costs and the savings associated with reduced storm water management infrastructure are considered, pervious is much cheaper.
