Intelligent River – Brad Putman

Posted by Infra on Monday, March 7th, 2011

“I’ve been involved with the Aiken green infrastructure project for the last couple of years. With that project, we’re trying to use different storm water best-management practices to reduce the effect of storm water on the city of Aiken and specifically on the Sand River.
I think one of the big things that we’re trying to accomplish with the Aiken project is to educate people that porous pavement is a legitimate paving surface.
The Aiken project is only the third porous asphalt project that we’ve done in South Carolina, so it’s nice to see it evolve and learn from each project that we do and move forward. Hopefully there will be more to come from this and Aiken has been a great showcase project for us to promote on a national scale.”
