Several New Jersey Schools Embrace Pervious Concrete

The advantages of pervious concrete were embraced four-fold by several New Jersey schools and universities this summer.  In total, the projects consumed more than 1,200 cubic yards of pervious concrete.

Rutgers University, after initial success with pervious concrete on smaller projects, began a sidewalk replacement program. The Central Regional High School and neighboring Central Regional Middle School in Bayville installed more than 6,000 linear feet of 8-foot wide sidewalks and parking areas that link the school parking areas to their athletic facilities. The Glen Landing Middle School in Gloucester Township included a pervious parking/school bus unloading area in its parking lot improvement project. The porous pavement reduced stormwater runoff to an already overloaded drainage pond.
