Town as well as local and federal environmental officials celebrated the EPA's Porous Pavement Education project, held at noon Tuesday, Nov. 20, an event rescheduled from Thursday, Nov. 8, at Hurd Field parking lot, off Drake Road (first right off Mass Ave after Trader Joe's when heading west; parking available on the traditional side of the lot). 

Expected to be present were Town Manager Adam Chapdelainer, EkOngKar Singh Khalsa, Mystic River Watershed Association; and Curt Spalding, US Environmental Protection Agency.

The discussion was about a stormwater best-management practice, and how EPA and the town collaborated to help improve water quality in the Mystic River Watershed.

Arlington Fire Department assisted in a demonstration and how porous pavement works and a regenerative air sweeper, specifically designed for porous pavement was on site to review.

A town news release says porous pavement reduces the volume and velocity of runoff, improves water quality by capturing the water and filtering it, replenishes groundwater, reduces impacts of flooding during storm events, eliminates the need for sanding and reduces the need for road salt in winter months.
