What is Permeable Interlocking Pavement?


Permeable interlocking concrete pavement (PICP) is comprised of a layer of concrete pavers separated by joints filled with small stones.

Start laying the groundwork for a “greener,” more sustainable environment… right in your own backyard.

Today more than ever before, our waterways - from the smallest creeks and streams to the largest bays and seas - are under environmental stress. Each new roadway, residential development, office park, or shopping mall creates additional obstacles for the earth's natural water filtration process. With limited access to ground soil and its organic cleansing action, stormwater runoff - mixed with motor oil, fertilizers, pesticides, and other harmful contaminants - can pollute the very watersheds we depend on for drinking water and harm the land-based and aquatic wildlife that reside there. As one homeowner, what can you do? More than you might think - in fact, there's never been a better time to "go green" than right now. Best of all, you can start making a positive impact right in your own backyard. EP Henry's ECO collection of permeable pavers are an attractive and effective way to lay the groundwork for a more environmentally-friendly home.
