We are proud of using 300 recycled tires for every 1000 sq feet of Stormflow Surfacing. This keeps these tires out of landfill and helps the circular economy. We also realize how important it is to create solutions for stormwater management issues. We help municipalities and individuals slow down the flow of rainwater. As permeable pavement installers, we give an alternative to asphalt and concrete.
It is our mission to help solve stormwater issues for municipalities and homeowners. Climate change has necessitated innovation, including replacing hard surfaces with permeable options. Hard surfaces such as concrete and asphalt cause all rainwater to run quickly into undersized stormwater drains. These antiquated systems were not built for these huge rain events.
With increased storms caused by climate change, more often storm sewers go into an emergency mode which diverts all untreated stormwater into nearby rivers and lakes. This includes garbage that has been swept up along the way. In the City of Toronto for example, 23% of the city has combined sewers (only 1 pipe for sewage and stormwater). This means during heavy rain events raw sewage is flowing into waterways.
United Nations SDG Goal 13
Our solution not only effectively addresses urban drainage issues, but also exemplifies environmental responsibility by harnessing the potential of recycled tires. By seamlessly integrating cutting-edge green technology, Stormflow Surfacing can create a lasting and far-reaching positive impact on the environment, paving the way for sustainable urban development and heightened resilience in the face of changing climatic conditions.
United Nations SDG Goal 9
We are proud of using recycled tires. A practice that not only diverts these tires from landfills but also contributes to the circular economy, fostering sustainability. By aiding municipalities and individuals in mitigating the rapid flow of rainwater, we actively contribute to the preservation of a healthy environment, aligning our efforts with the well-being of our natural surroundings.
United Nations SDG Goal 11
Our recycled tires come from Ontario, ensuring local sourcing for out-of-province endeavors whenever feasible. Our tires undergo a meticulously monitored shredding process, eliminating 99% of steel fragments and yielding high-quality rubber chips ranging from 1/4″ to 3/8″ in nominal size. The stone integrated into our mixes are from Ontario granite, reinforcing our commitment to regional materials and sustainable practices.
