Have you ever wanted to learn how green roofs are designed and what the metrics are for water capture and performance? The company that used to be called xeroflor® Canada has started an exciting new chapter as Next Level Stormwater Management™. They are offering a free webinar on how vegetated roofing systems work.
Urban centers have high concentrations of impervious areas which pose a challenge in managing large volumes of stormwater. Heavy rain events or back-to-back storms cause problems like flooding, property damage, and combined overflow sewer discharge. Green infrastructure, such as vegetated roofs, can help mitigate these problems because they restore the hydrologic cycle in urbanized areas. Vegetated roof systems designed for maximum stormwater management decrease the volume of stormwater within the urban core and reliably delay travel time of stormwater to the treatment plant. These retention and detention strategies help alleviate the burden of heavy stormwater on our cities’ infrastructure.
