Porous Asphalt

The Village recently installed porous asphalt on Cumberland, Roslyn, and Melrose as part of the KW2023 Green Streets Project.  This asphalt, which sits on a bed of washed, clean stone, allows water to flow directly through it, minimizing the potential for flooding.  The Video below is a demonstration of the Village's new streets absorbing water from a Fire Department Hose that hit it with 500 Gallons/minute of water.
