The Crucial Impact of Paving Stones in Rainwater Management in Montreal

The Importance of Rainwater Management

In urban areas like Montreal, Laval, Longueuil, as well as on the South and North Shores, effective rainwater management is crucial. Paving stones, a key element of our services at Maçonnerie Montréal, play a significant role in this management. Let's delve into how paving stones contribute to solving this environmental challenge in detail.

Hydrological Characteristics of Paving Stones

1. Permeability: Unlike traditional concrete, paving stones allow water to seep into the ground, reducing runoff. 2. Reduction of Erosion: By promoting infiltration, paving stones limit erosion caused by surface waters. 3. Natural Filtration: Water infiltrating through paving stones is naturally filtered, reducing pollution.

Ecological and Urban Benefits

Reduction of Flood Risks

Paving stones help to decrease the volume of water reaching drainage systems, thus reducing the risk of urban flooding.

Improvement of Water Quality

By filtering rainwater, paving stones help to improve the quality of water that flows into rivers and lakes.

Contribution to Urban Biodiversity

The spaces between paving stones create micro-habitats for flora and fauna, enriching urban biodiversity.
