TCF Bank Stadium is green

WCCO's Darcy Pohland reports on the greenness of the TCF Bank Stadium, on the verge of becoming the first LEED-certified football stadium in the US. Jason Lamers (BED, 2007; MLA, 2009) designed an eco-friendly storm water drainage system for the stadium. "We're routing it into a half-acre of turf grass," Lamers told Pohland. "In this turf grass we have the capacity to store 132,000 gallons of water."

UMNews has a video about the stadium's storm water management system and additional information about the stadium's LEED certification.
