Fort Morgan, Colorado Manages
Its Stormwater

New street construction for Main Street in downtown Fort Morgan, Colorado reduced the street's crown from 8 to 2 percent. The city installed 18,000 square-feet of permeable concrete interlocking pavers (PCIP) from Pavestone for the designated angle parking areas on both sides of the street. The permeable pavers allow average storm rainfall to drain before reaching the curbs. Different color pavers define the parking stalls. Contrasting white pavers were placed to create striping between the parking spaces, obviating the upkeep costs of painted lines.

The aggregate-filled voids between permeable pavers allow rainwater and snowmelt to naturally infiltrate into the ground or to where it can be harvested for irrigation or other uses. At Fish Lake Regional Park in Maple Grove, Minn., Glacial Ridge Inc. from Willmar, Minn., installed 19,000 square feet of Willow Creek Brickstone permeable paving stones to rehabilitate the parking lots and to compensate for poor soil conditions.
