The article focuses on the test for porous asphalt in an alley in Saint Louis. It notes that this technology was not yet widely applied though it has been around for nearly 20 years. It could save 30 percent on construction costs for parking lots. The new EPA Phase II Storm Water regulations will add up to 55 percent to the cost of parking lot construction. Moreover, the officials are expected to watch the tests closely to identify its response to the freeze-thaw in the area.
