Description
As our cities grow and communities become increasingly paved over, the amount of impervious surfaces has increased dramatically. This increase in impervious surfaces contributes to a variety of stormwater related issues such as groundwater pollution, combined sewer overflows, and increased stress on aging infrastructural systems. Green roofs do an exceptional job and reintroducing resilience and adaptability through the renaturalization of constructed spaces and managing stormwater at the source, before it hits the ground.
