Center to get new, air-cleaning roof

The Parks and Recreation Department is replacing the old roof on the Albert G. Jennings Center with a roof that will clean the air.

The membrane features roofing granules that increase the speed of degradation of nitrous oxides.

Byproducts from the decomposition of nitrous-oxide molecules are carried away by rainwater and have no measurable impact on the quality of run-off water, officials say.

Yearly, 20,000 square feet of the membrane consumes the nitrous-oxide molecules released by 50 passenger cars or light trucks driven 11,000 miles each, officials say.
