Stormwater Retention for a Modular Green Roof Using Energy Balance Data

New York City stormwater is a major cause of water pollution in the harbor and estuaries. This is due to the vast areas of impervious surfaces (e.g., rooftops, pavements, sidewalks) that rapidly shunt runoff into the combined sewage overflow (CSO) system. Green, vegetative roofs may offer one of the most effective methods of distributed stormwater control to help abate this pollution. This study analyzed data from an experimental modular green roof system on the Con Edison “Learning Center” in Long Island City, New York.
