Hydromedia® is permeable concrete pavement combining the durability of concrete with the environmental benefits of permeable surfaces. It can be used to reduce the impact of the stormwater runoff and reduce the heat island effect. 


Hydromedia is a permeable paving solution combining the durability of concrete with the functional benefits of permeable pavements. Hydromedia provides several environmental and economical benefits: It can reduce the amount of stormwater runoff on a site, and it can help reduce the cost of conventional stormwater management technologies. These properties allow it to make significant contributions to the LEED Credits in Sustainable Sites 6.1 ( Stormwater Runoff) and 7.1 ( Heat Island Effect, Non-roof).


Hydromedia is a Low-Compactability Pervious Concrete (LCPC), meaning it offers significant advantages to the project management team: the decreased compaction minimizes the equiptment and personnel requirements. When placed by an Authorized Contractor, Hydromedia can provide an aesthetically pleasing, functionally draining surface.


Lafarge provides guidance to designers  when incorporating Hydromedia into a stormwater managements system. The flexibility of its ready mix concrete delivery and its ease of placement allow for creative uses of the technology in a variety of situations.
