Presto Geosystems’ GEOPAVE® porous pavements were utilized for parking and walkways with other environmental and sustainable products at a Wisconsin nature preserve, The Ridges Sanctuary, in their pursuit for USGBC LEED® Platinum rating.
Protecting Lake Michigan’s watershed was a primary concern at this facility’s location adjacent to the lake’s western shores. The porous pavements were an important part of the overall plan to protect the waters against the negative effects of stormwater runoff on water quality. The GEOPAVE system, infilled with highly porous stone, allows water infiltration and acts as a natural, onsite stormwater retention system, storing stormwater in its aggregate base after rain events and allowing for natural percolation. GEOPAVE pavements are designed to accept everyday traffic from cars, trucks and emergency vehicles.
