Porous Pavement on Masonvale:



In the ongoing effort to reducing impervious areas, Mason continues to encourage the implementation of porous pavement. Mason currently has more than 1 acre of pervious pavement in Fairfax campus.  Permeable pavement is mainly used in low-traffic areas such as back roads, housing facilities and bike racks. The use of pervious pavement not only reduces the runoff concentrations, but also enhances the natural process of filtration.
