This research, performed by the University of Central Florida Stormwater Management Academy, evaluates differences in greenroof designs and provides recommendations with respect to the depth of the media, the drainage layer materials, and the use of pollution control media. The project investigated the water quality and hydrology effects of different greenroof designs and included a comparison study on the cistern water quality, direct filtrate water quality, and control roof filtrate water quality.
