Hydromedia® Pervious Concrete


More than a product, Hydromedia is a sustainable water management system that rapidly absorbs stormwater off streets, parking surfaces, driveways and walkways to reduce the risk of flooding.

This permeable solution combines the properties of concrete and advanced drainage technology. Hydromedia enables the ultra-rapid evacuation of water directly into the soil to create a natural aquifer recharge or allow the water to be recycled. It is designed to cover a range of needs, from street pavements to roofing solutions, and can be colored to achieve a diversity of design possibilities.

  • Water management to avoid flooding with high permeability and no water surface collection
  • Safe, non-slippery pavement under different conditions
  • No sloping needed to manage water
  • 100% recyclable, reduces heat island effect and helps recycle rainwater
