Snow removal on the porous pavement has not been a problem, as shown in the videos. The porous pavement surface is very even and allows snow clearing with a typical snow shovel or snow blower. Larger applications, such as porous pavement parking lots, can be cleared with snow plows. For the protection of the driver, the steel edge of the plow should be fitted with a rubber edge for all jointed pavements, included poured concrete. No deicing salts or agent are needed at the 168 Elm installation: Melt water on the porous pavement drains immediately through the gaps between pavers (see also Snow melt video, or Winter images).
