CLEANER WATER WITH ASPHALT! – APA RELEASES NEW WHITE PAPER
Lanham, MD - Asphalt pavements can be excellent tools in improving water quality, says a new white paper from the Asphalt Pavement Alliance. "The APA's newest publication scientifically documents the beneficial effects asphalt pavements can have on water quality," according to Dr. Howard Marks of the National Asphalt Pavement Association. Dr. Marks is the report's principal author and serves as co-chair of the team that produced the document.
"The green benefits of 100 percent recyclable asphalt pavement might be surprising to some. For improved stormwater management, clean drinking water, and reduced roadside pollution, asphalt pavements are clean and environmentally beneficial," he continued. The publication, "Cleaner Water With Asphalt Pavements," is available as a free download here.
The Asphalt Pavement Alliance is a coalition of the National Asphalt Pavement Association, the Asphalt Institute, and the State Asphalt Pavement Associations. The Alliance's mission is to further the use and quality of asphalt pavements. The Alliance will accomplish this through research, technology transfer, engineering, education, and innovation.
