Transform your roof. Start at the Sluiceway
Test out the Green Roof Sluiceway yourself on March 18 & 19 at the NERCA 2019 Convention at the Foxwoods Resort Casino. At booth #604, Rodney Chaney will measure and compare water retention as well as heat transfer on vegetated roofs vs black roofs.. It is a great opportunity to get up close and personal with innovative green roof technology. Touch, feel and witness how it can play a vital role in retaining and detaining rainfall, attenuating stormwater, mitigating the urban heat island effect and reducing the environmental footprint.
Vegetated roofing systems reduce the environmental footprint in many ways, simultaneously.
• Water: The green roof helps detain and retain rainfall at its source and therefore control runoff.
• Energy saving: Through shading, insulation and evaporative cooling the green roof therefore helps reduce energy use.
• Climate: Green roof reduces flash floods and combined sewage overflow. It addition, it mitigates the urban heat island effect.
Stormwater is the main way pollution gets into the rivers and waterways
A good rainfall really cleans the city streets. All the road salt, cigarette butts, animal feces, antifreeze, dust, automotive rubber and metal — all is swept up in the rain, into the storm sewers and therefore into our waterways.
The Sluiceway will illustrate this with an interactive demonstration of the how green roof systems help retain and detain rainfall.
How Green Roofs Help
Volunteers can pour gallons of water onto two sloping platforms. Platform One will mimic a typical roof and feature a waterproofing membrane. Trash and that would be found on city walk and road ways and end up in the sewer system. Platform two features the StormCap pre-vegetated system that collects rainfall and helps with stormwater management. At the end of each platform a storage bin will collect the “rainfall” and trash. The audience will witness the performance of the StormCap vegetated roofing system and learn why vegetative roofing technology plays a key role in stormwater management.
