Porous Asphalt Parking Lot

The Caroline County Department of Emergency Services is proud to have the first porous asphalt parking lot in Caroline County, Maryland! The environmentally-friendly parking lot has a porous asphalt surface that allows rainwater to flow through the surface. Instead of carrying pollutants from the street into our waterways, porous asphalt redirects and filters the storm-water, helping to keep our rivers and streams healthy and clean!

This project was made possible by a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency and Maryland Department of the Environment through the Federal Clean Water Act Section 319(h) Program and the support of the Maryland Asphalt Association and Caroline Career and Technology Center.
