Did You Know?

That the DC Government has two green roof rebate programs - one for any kind of roof under 4,000 s.f. that offers $5 / s.f. and a per-project maximum of $20,000 - and a second program for roof retrofits on existing buildings over 4,000 s.f. which offers $7 / s.f. and does not have a maximum amount (find out more about this rebate program here).

That the US General Services Administration (GSA) is starting its own green revolution with an integrated green roof strategy and already have over one million square feet of green roofs installed?

That under the new EPA requirements (Section 438 of the Energy, Independence and Security Act -- EISA), federal agencies must minimize stormwater runoff from federal development projects to protect water resources, thereby stimulating green roof and wall infrastructure?

That the Washington District Department of the Environment initiated a $5 per square foot green roof subsidy with a per-project maximum of $20,000?

That President Obama’s Executive Order 13514 on Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance,  was signed on October 5, 2009.  The EO requires Federal agencies to set greenhouse gas reduction targets, increase energy efficiency, reduce fossil fuel consumption, conserve water, reduce waste, support sustainable planning, and leverage Federal purchasing power to promote environmentally-responsible products and technologies.

That the Clean Energy Stimulus and Investment Assurance Act of 2009 (S.320) introduced by Sen. Maria E. Cantwell (D-Wash.) intends to provides financial incentives for homeowners or commercial building owners which choose to install green roofs on their buildings.

Integrated Water Management for Buildings and Sites

The goal of the Introduction to Integrated Water Management Educational Seminar, that is managed by GRHC and directed jointly by GRHC and ASIC committee members, is to leverage additional government and public awareness by providing technical and economic information on the design and performance of a fully integrated site and building water management system based on the “Net Zero Water” concept.

This approach promises to significantly reduce the consumption of potable water in buildings, reduce discharge to municipal waste water system and save on municipal energy by reducing the amount of potable water treated at municipal facilities. At the same time the Net Zero Water will develop and efficiently manage limited water resources in order to deliver truly sustainable living systems to the urban environment.  The recognition of the connection between water management and energy conservation is emerging as a new opportunity in integrated management systems.

The seminar will focus on integrated water management concepts and terminology illustrated by case studies and demonstration projects to identify key issues and opportunities associated with:

  • costs and benefits,
  • design and engineering practices,
  • installation and maintenance requirements,
  • efficiency and performance of a fully functional integrated site and building water management system based on the “Net Zero Water” concept.

Jeffrey L. Bruce, FASLA, LEED, ASIC, GRP. JBC provides highly specialized technical support to many of the nation’s leading Architectural and Landscape Architectural firms on a wide variety of project profiles including engineered soils, green roof technologies, urban agronomy, performance sports turf, and irrigation engineering. Mr. Bruce is a recognized expert is the two fields of knowledge required to develop this seminar and his accomplishments, commitment and vision are well documented.  Incoming President of the American Society of Irrigation Consultants (ASIC) and Chairman of Green Roofs for Healthy Cities (GRHC).
