GIF - Monroe Building Green RoofProject Description:

The green roof project at the Monroe Building converted approximately 5,200 square feet of roof top surface to a vegetative roof system comprised of a sedum and chive mixture.  This roof is expected to capture at least one inch of precipitation in a given storm or sequence of storms, preventing it from entering the sewer.

The project, located at 333 E. Onondaga Street, was one of the first ‘green’ roof projects constructed downtown and also included a “green jobs” component. The county partnered with SUNY-ESF to incorporate participants in the Green Infrastructure Training Program for education and maintenance of the roof.
