Home Drainage Altus OK

Storm-water runoff in Altus has become a big problem in many communities. It not only causes flooding but can also be a health hazard. Runoff occurs when precipitation, instead of soaking into the ground, is diverted by impervious surfaces like driveways, sidewalks and streets. As it flows over these surfaces, it picks up chemicals, pollutants and debris, which it deposits into streams, lakes and wetland.

Storm-water runoff has become a big problem in many communities. It not only causes flooding but can also be a health hazard. Runoff occurs when precipitation, instead of soaking into the ground, is diverted by impervious surfaces like driveways, sidewalks and streets. As it flows over these surfaces, it picks up chemicals, pollutants and debris, which it deposits into streams, lakes and wetlands, affecting water quality.

Providing proper drainage around homes or in developments is one solution. Another is to use permeable pavers, such as UNI Eco-Stone, which is designed to reduce storm-water runoff through infiltration.

A permeable concrete paving system, Eco-Stone consists of interlocking pavers (just over 3 inches thick and about 9 inches long) installed over a 4- to 6-inch base of compacted aggregate. The system is designed to create drainage openings in the pavement surface, so rainwater can seep through to the groundwater below.

The system can support heavy vehicular loads, so it can be used for driveways and courtyards, as well as patios and walkways. A variety of patterns are available, including basketweave and herringbone. Professional installation is recommended, since proper construction is essential. Costs are about $2 to $3 per square foot.
