Title: Moving Towards a Sustainable Campus: Design of a Green Roof Monitoring Experiment
Virginia Wesleyan College students will design green roofs for campus that will reduce the volume of stormwater runoff and concentrations of mercury and nutrients in runoff. Virginia Wesleyan College is currently in the design phase for construction of a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®)-certified science building to be built in 2009 and will implement green roof technology on two residence halls in 2006-2007.
