Actually, most people are not resistant to the notion and methods of “Permeability.” What does exist, is the ignorance of how permeability can improve the environment and better replenish the water supply: our most valuable resource.

Environmental education needs to begin and the pre-school stage of life. Old folks don’t really bother with the notion of permeability unless it directly affects them.

Educating our children helps reassure that when they become the civil engineers, landscape architects and politicians, they will know better and implement permeable design and products.
