While earth is made up of nearly 70 percent water, only 2.5 percent of it is fresh, with only about 1 percent accessible (much of it is trapped below the earth’s surface or in glaciers and snow fields). It is estimated that more than a billion people live without enough clean water, as drought and pollution make water a scarce commodity.
Water conservation is a challenging task as the world’s population continues to grow, so we are taking steps to aid stormwater management, reduce runoff, and decrease flooding risks.
We’ve added permeable pavers – porous paving grids that allow water to drain into the ground or sub-base rock underneath – to the Town Center and Gateway parking lots, as well as sidewalks and tree pits.
