Protecting the Environment

Environment

Storms and the resulting storm water runoff play a major role in damaging our fragile environment, especially in low-lying areas and in embankments surrounding creek beds. Sprawling development and the need for pavement supporting these developments have created real issues concerning the control of stormwater.


Block USA offers a number of permeable pavers, erosion control products and even segmental retaining walls specifically designed to control storm water and reduce damage to the environment.

Block USA’s Submar Articulated Concrete Block Mats are a great solution for creeks that run out of control during rainy periods. They protect creek bottoms, banks, and vegetative growth.

Permeable pavers manufactured and sold by Block USA create parking areas that provide protection from storm water runoff while allowing large signature trees to obtain water essential to their well being. Check out continually updated case studies to learn more about how Block USA is designing and manufacturing products to protect the environment.
