Permeable paving is one of the infiltration standards that Los Angeles and other surrounding cities prefer to use on grading and drainage projects.

We get asked quite a bit what the infiltration standard is and what permeable pavers look like.  Most know that permeable pavers are something like grass-crete with blocks of concrete with space in between the blocks, generally filled with grass, used to drain stormwater.  The attached picture shows the current Los Angeles City standard section for permeable pavers, which is one of the options a small scale residential project can implement to meet the LID requirements.
