Pilot Program to Find Alternatives to Permeable Pavement Receives Funding

The State Water Control Board has authorized funding from the Virginia Water Facilities Revolving Fund to the City of Richmond of an interest-free loan in an amount up to approximately $1.3 million.

The loan will be used to finance a pilot program to identify the benefits and cost-effectiveness of alternatives to permeable pavement surfaces in city alleyways, and the impact of these alternatives on storm water runoff reduction.

“This loan will greatly benefit DPU’s ongoing commitment to utilize green infrastructure Best Management Practices within the storm water utility,” s­­aid DPU Director Bob Steidel. “Ratepayers will also see a benefit as a result of the interest-free funding.”
