Permeable Pavers Workshop

Have you heard of permeable pavers and interested in how you might use them on your property to address stormwater run off? Come and learn about two stormwater projects that the Tanana Valley Watershed Association (TVWA), the Department of Conservation (DEC), and the City of Fairbanks (COF) will be installing along Cushman Street this spring. 

Important Information

When: May 9th

9am-10am: Discussion: Learn about the process that TVWA went through for S Salon and Transit Park to develop stormwater fixes for these two sites. The focus will be on the use of permeable pavers, as Fairbanks Materials Inc. (FMI) will be there to introduce this type of paver and where you can use it.


10am - 4pm: Hands-on Workshop: Paver installation at S Salon and Transit Park on Cushman Street. Be prepared for digging and some lifting of pavers. Wear work clothes. All equipment will be provided. Space is limited for this part of the workshop, sign up fast!

Where: TVWA & S Salon
We'll begin at the TVWA's office for the lecture 516 2nd Ave Suite 412 on the 4th floor of the Lathrop Building. Then we will walk over to S Salon and Transit Park for the installations.
