Permeable Paving Options For Your Home & Business

October 14, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

A Guelph RAIN program learning event

Do you need a new driveway, patio, pathway, or parking lot for your home or workplace? Are you a contractor who wants to be able to offer permeable paving services to your clients?

Permeable surfaces are important to help avoid water problems on your property and help recharge our aquifers and groundwater. Hear from the experts about how different surfaces work, the benefits and costs of each option, and what you need to do to maintain each type of surface. Contractors will also learn about suppliers and upcoming training opportunities.
