Can a brick do the trick?

(NewsUSA) - When it comes to water conservation, most people think of shorter showers or more efficient appliances, but few have ever imagined a brick could do the trick.
Newer clay brick pavers allow rainwater to soak back into the ground gradually through their permeable surface, which creates a natural filtering process that decreases storm water runoff and flooding by allowing water to dissipate into the watershed.
Runoff is a major environmental concern because water that is not able to soak back into the ground finds its way to bodies of water such as streams, lakes and rivers and carries with it pollutants such as fertilizers, wastes and other chemicals. As a result, building materials that reduce runoff are integral to both water conservation and its cleanliness.
Used to build driveways and parking lots, RainPave and StormPave from Pine Hall Brick save water, reduce pollution and work great in cities like Atlanta, where local ordinances limit the amount of area allowed to be impervious to water infiltration. In fact, these pavers have even been used to replace retention ponds, which translates to more available land.
