Phila. roofs are sprouting greenery

Villanova researchers are looking at drainage scenarios, and learning that "green roofs often have more storage capacity than we are taking advantage of," said Bridget Wadzuk, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering. The finding could lead to new drainage structures that will bring down the cost "and make green roofs an even more attractive option for storm-water management," she said.
