Vancouver Library Drip Irrigation System

Active Turf Irrigation has had the opportunity to work on some really cool projects over the years. One of them was installing the drip irrigation system on the green roof of the Vancouver Library in downtown Vancouver.

Did you know that a green roof provides a rainwater buffer? It also purifies the air, reduces the ambient temperature, regulates the indoor temperature, saves energy, and promotes biodiversity in an urban environment.
