Project Title & Description
Monitoring of Demonstration Green Roof
This project will study the control of stormwater runoff, water quality, heat generation via the installation and data collected from the construction of a green roof. Green roofs consist of plants being grown on roofs, thus replacing the vegetated footprint that was destroyed when the building was constructed. By recovering green space, this pilot seeks to identify potential improvements in the quality and absorption rate of stormwater runoff in the project area thus reducing local flooding and associated impacts to the existing municipal drainage system around the Bronx County building.
