Pervious Pavement

Stormwater wetlands are constructed to treat stormwater runoff by mimicking the physical, chemical, and biological functions of natural wetlands. Constructed wetlands consist of shallow pools that support wetland vegetation and wildlife. The natural processes remove pollutants from runoff before discharging to local streams and waterways.
