Why don’t local governments require, encourage, or use permeable concrete?

    The problem that arises with pervious, or permeable concrete, is that it hasn’t been proven to resist freeze-thaw damage.  While pervious concrete has been used in the warmer climates of the United States with excellent results, places with freeze-thaw cycles are hesitant to use the concrete.  New EPA guidelines require concrete to lessen run off rates, and permeable concrete is one solution to this problem.  It seems that local governments are waiting to see how permeable concrete stands the test of time before they commit to using it.
