Pervious Pavers

Put Water Back in the Ground, Not in the Creek!

When it rains, polluted water runs down the sidewalks, driveways and streets into the storm drains.  This water goes directly to the Little Falls creek.  You can help keep the water clean by replacing your driveway or sidewalk with "pervious pavers".  These alternative paving materials let the water go into the ground.  

Program that will Pay you to Make a Difference:

* In DC, you can get up to $1,200 for replacing your hard surfaces like sidewalks, driveways and patios with pervious ones.
* Montgomery County also offers up to $1,200 for pervious pavement.

Check the RiverSmart Homes website (DC Government) or Rainscapes website (Montgomery County) for complete details.
