Summary: “We needed additional parking and we looked at Gravelpave2 since it wouldn’t contribute anymore run-off than the existing undisturbed field,” states David Greer, EIT with O’Donald Engineering. “Otherwise, an asphalt lot would have added almost a mile of storm sewer to the project.” “We approached the City with the Gravelpave2 idea, and they accepted,” adds Greer. The site was also able to keep many of the old growth trees that grew in the field. “The Arborist was also pleased we could keep the well established trees,” says Greer. “He was concerned if we had an asphalt parking lot, the impervious surface encroaching on the tree’s drip line would eventually kill them.”
