SUB Green Roof Gets Recognition

Sunday, August 10


"Just Energy" recently listed its Top Six Cities to Find Green Rooftops and listed Moscow as its number five pick, highlighting the university's Student Union Building's green roof. This experimental roof was built in 2008 using a grant from the Sustainability Center and matching funds from the Idaho Commons and Student Union. The roof is open to the public and can be used as a laboratory where faculty and students can measure the effects of a green roof on storm water runoff, air temperature, water quality and other environmentally important subjects.
