Washington D.C. Green Roof Program

2007

In 2003, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation initiated a green roof demonstration project funded under the terms of a consent decree negotiated by the D. C. Water and Sewer Authority. The money was used to issue grants for the installation of eight different pilot green roofs that would reduce the cost of each green roof cost to the building owner by up to 20 percent. The pilot roofs served as models that building owners could use for future green roof projects, by providing data on costs, construction methods, performance, and maintenance needs.

Portland, Oregon NE Siskiyou Green Street Project Report

2007

In 2003, the Portland Bureau of Environmental Services installed two landscaped stormwater curb extensions designed to capture street stormwater runoff on Siskiyou Street in Portland, Oregon.

The objective was to maximize the capture, treatment, and infiltration of street stormwater runoff, while enhancing the neighborhood and offering improved pedestrian safety.
