What We've Been Up To!
We recently completed a 1,700 square foot green roof at The Catholic University of America. Located on Aquinus Hall, this modular green roof is the third on campus. The Aquinus roof includes solar panels installed on two-thirds of surface. The vegetated roof will reduce over 22,000 gallons of stormwater runoff each year from polluting our sewers and waterways. Take a peak at our current posting onwww.greenroofs.com.
BLOOMINGDALE/ LeDROIT PARK:
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy and other recent heavy rainfall events, DC Greenworks has been selected byDC Water and DDOE to install rain barrels and cisterns in two Washington neighborhoods that have been repeatedly threatened by stormwater backups.
As part of the Mayor's plans to mitigate sewage overflows and flooding in the Bloomingdale and LeDroit Park communities, DC Greenworks began installation earlier this month.
