Boral Hydrapave® is a permeable paver which allows storm water to infiltrate through small channels in the paver. This is a cost competitive and environmentally productive approach to treating water. Rather than collecting water run-off, channelling it through open drains and subsequently treating it, the patented Hydrapave® system allows rain water to infiltrate through small channels formed on the ends and sides of the concrete pavers, passing into a prepared sub-base. The water is then detained, filtered, treated and dispersed, discharged or directed for re-use. The Hydrapave® is manufactured in Australia.


Benefits of using the Hydrapave® system include:

  • Organic matter and loam are caught on the geotextile and held in the layer of 5mm aggregate. 
  • Oils and heavy metals coat the surface of the organic matter and loam. 
  • Natural microbial filament growth in the sub-base digests low level hydrocarbon pollution. 
  • Severe hydrocarbon contamination can be treated by seeding with specialist microbes and slow release fertilisers. 

For long service life & low maintenance: 

  • Regular sweeping of the Hydrapave® surface is recommended to remove leaves and debris which may inhibit the water absorption capacity. 
  • Occasional light power cleaning may be used to remove unsightly surface contaminants. 
  • Under normal conditions and appropriate light maintenance cycles as detailed above, a working life of 10 or more years can be expected. After this time, the pavers can be lifted and cleaned, the bedding materials and filter fabrics replaced, and the pavers re-laid to continue providing excellent service into the future.
