Hillside Elementary School Green Roof
October 2 - October 3
Green roofs are covered in a layer of vegetation and are more eco-friendly than the impermeable alternatives. The Hillside Elementary School green roof plays a crucial role in stormwater management and provides benefits to Tredyffrin Township and the Valley Creek Watershed. The green roof manages stormwater by reducing the volume of runoff and delaying the peak rate of runoff. It also lowers the school’s heating and cooling costs by moderating the building temperatures. Check out this video about the Hillside green roof, which was made by high school students of the District!
