First United Methodist Church Stormwater Retrofits: “Planning Before the Design”

 

By Chris Myers and Ashley Parker

Stormwater retrofit work began shortly after AWS received grant money from the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) in June of 2013.  As mentioned in a previous blog, AWS selected the First United Methodist Church as one of the sites to initiate stormwater management efforts.  Selecting the site was relatively easy.  Next, AWS needed to convince the church that managing its stormwater runoff was the right thing to do.

Rebate helped fund this green roof atop the Mary Graydon Center at American University.

If you haven’t already heard, the District Department of the Environment (DDOE) is once again providing rebates, at $5 per square foot, for green roofs to qualified applicants for the third consecutive year! The Anacostia Watershed Society (AWS) is administering the program for DDOE and believes this is a great opportunity to help people cover some costs of their proposed green roofs as well as an opportunity to reach out to those unfamiliar with this technology all in an effort to help restore the watershed.
