We talked earlier about impervious surfaces and how paved sidewalks are a common example. Look down at the sidewalk. You see how the cracks between the bricks are bigger and have gravel in them? Recent construction in the Village of Lake Placid has changed the surface of the sidewalks to be pervious, which means that water can flow through it. This can help to improve the environment by preventing runoff of excess road salt into Mirror Lake.
