City Installs Environmentally Friendly Pavers on N. Main Street

Pervious Pavers on N Main Street 1

     As part of Hudson’s N. Main Street Improvement Project, the City has installed environmentally friendly, pervious pavers that were financed in part through a grant from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, under the Surface Water Improvement Fund (SWIF). The program provides grant funding to organizations to build storm water quality improvements that will improve surface water runoff that can enter waterways. Total cost for the paver system was approximately $80,000.

     Prior to the project, no storm water management systems existed in this section of North Main Street. Now, more than 5,000 square feet of permeable pavers have been installed. These pavers will help reduce and treat storm water runoff by filtering pollutants from vehicles and sidewalk runoff. The filtration of runoff helps to protect the environment by partially capturing and storing runoff long enough to allow pollutants to be filtered through the paver system and into the underlying layers of stone and soil which helps imitate the natural water cycle.

     “Whenever we are upgrading infrastructure throughout the City, we look for ways that we can add storm water management,” said Brad Kosco, Assistant City Engineer. “Through the help of this Ohio EPA grant, we were able to add pervious pavers to help reduce runoff and improve water quality in this section of road.”
