A year in the works, the green roof atop the Metro Household Hazardous Waste (H2W) Facility (see details here and here) is getting close to being finished. Snyder Roofing has completed the roofing, and Enviroscapes NW is installing the vegetated portions this week. The multi-roof project has over 2,500 square feet of with the green roof assembly in place, irrigation heads and growing media, along with pavers. Plants and project wrap up should happen by end of July.
In addition, a large informational sign, developed by Metro, TERRA.fluxus, and Orangewall Studios will greet visitors to the facility, while they are dropping off their hazardous materials. Approximately 25,000 people annually visit the facility, and while they can’t see the project – they can look up and envision the stormwater management in action.
