LONG BEACH - Job Corps students celebrated Earth Week Tuesday by demonstrating the advantages of using permeable pavement instead of concrete to keep polluted runoff from reaching the sea. The display at the Long Beach Job Corps Center was part of a week-long attempt to raise awareness of the environment, sustainability and climate change.
Earth Day is Thursday and Earth Week continues through Sunday.
Water hitting the permeable pavement sinks through the layers, returning to the ground instead of running off into storm drains and carrying bacteria or trash to rivers and oceans, Meredith Reynolds, Long Beach Sustainability Coordinator, said.
