• Philadelphia to use green roofs, absorptive pavements to curb water pollution

  • Keen on reducing water pollution, Philadelphia is busy making plans to turn building roofs green. After having inked a deal with the state environment officials lately, the Philadelphia City Water Department will begin work on green roofs, absorptive pavements and extended park spaces in the city, that will help contain the flow of water and prevent water pollution to quite a commendable extent. Besides cleaning up Philadelphian water streams, the project will add a touch of green to the city too, making it a better place to live in.

    A fine move by the city authorities, Philadelphia will soon be a green and eco-friendly place to live in, with water pollution problems turning up in history books.
