Green Roof Strategy. 2003.
CIER researched the feasibility of developing a green roof strategy for the City of Winnipeg. For this study, we focused primarily on the potential stormwater retention benefits of green roofs in the City of Winnipeg’s combined sewer overflow (CSO) district. We showed that significant CSO reductions could be achieved in certain areas of the city by using green roof technology. This project was funded by: the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Green Municipal Enabling Fund, the Province of Manitoba’s Sustainable Development Innovations Fund, and in-kind support of numerous other public and private sector parties.
