The Indianapolis Department of Public Works will install a green roof on a new portion of a wastewater storage and treatment facility on the Northside. Green roofs are vegetated roof systems; they help capture storm water run-off that would otherwise run into the sewer and drainage systems. Green roofs also help capture air pollution and reduce the “urban heat island” effect. They also insulate buildings. Go to nuvo.net for a full story on the green initiative.
