A patio concrete roof top on the campus of UD is being renovated to include green roof enhancements. The improvements will be both aesthetic and functional to be used an educational and research site regarding green roofs. Sensor systems will be included in both the design and construction to enhance the goals of the project. Work on the site is scheduled to begin spring of 2017. The site will educate the university community on the challenges of stormwater runoff within the local ecosystem while demonstrating solutions for peak water discharge reduction during local rain events.
