Permeable pavers are alternative sources that allow stormwater runoff to filter through voids in the pavement surface, into an underlying stone reservoir, where it’s temporarily stored or infiltrated.

Traditionally paved surfaces are impermeable, which converts rainfall to runoff. Permeable pavers slow and captures rainwater, allowing it to infiltrate, promoting a high degree of runoff reduction and nutrient removal.

Eligible Components

  • Excavation
  • Grading
  • Installation (backfilling, leveling)
  • Stone aggregate
  • Pavers
  • Grids
  • Pervious concrete/asphalt
  • Geotextile fabric
  • Underdrain components
  • Pretreatment when necessary
  • Erosion and sediment controls when necessary

Cost Share and/or Tax Credit Rates

  • Applicants, including any entity or member of the same household, will be limited to $50,000.00 in cost share
  • Permit fees are not an eligible component cost for any practice and therefore cannot receive cost-share
  • For specific amounts, contact the district office


The surface of these pavers includes:

  • Pervious grid pavers
  • Porous asphalt/concrete
  • Permeable interlocking pavers.

All Permeable Pavements Have a Similar Structure:

  • Surface permeable pavement layer
  • Underlying stone aggregate reservoir layer
  • Filter layer or fabric installed underneath
