A brief description of the institution's stormwater management initiatives:

A number of stormwater containment features are in place on the Bryant Campus. There are five stormwater retention basins which collect water from parking lots and playing fields. Our newest parking lot is constructed with a deep swale specially constructed to collect and filter stormwater runoff from the lot. The runoff from roofs of nearly 60% of the campus buildings are collected in a reflecting pond. Hay bales and silt fences are erected around any areas that are to be disturbed by new construction activities.
