Stormwater Performance Metrics Key to Green Roof Implementation



Experts on the Living Architecture Performance Tool, currently in development, expound on its significance as a means to align green roof implementation with the EPA's mandate for Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) reductions which will affect countless cities across the U.S.


The potential uses and benefits of the tool and the common barriers to green roof implementation were key topics of discussion at a recent workshop presented by the Green Infrastructure Foundation in New York City. An article analyzing the issues put forward at the workshop, written by Rohan Lilauwala and David Yocca, appears on pages 28-29 in the Winter 2015-16 issue of the Living Architecture Monitor.

Be sure to mark your calendars for the 4th annual Grey to Green Conference: Addressing Climate Change with Green Infrastructure, June 1-4, 2016 in Toronto. For more information, or to register go to Green Roofs for Healthy Cities
