Does the institution have policies and/or guidelines in place to improve outdoor air quality and minimize air pollutant emissions from mobile sources?:
Yes

A brief description of the policies and/or guidelines to improve outdoor air quality and minimize air pollutant emissions from mobile sources:

The institution has done surveys on the percentage of the heating plant that has lead boilers that have low Nox emissions rates and have found that percentage to be 75-100%. We have set guidelines on the percentage of ozone depletion refrigerants, which we have found to be 0-50% depending on type of refrigerant. Recovery facilities that comply with federal guidelines and requirement for on-site ozone depleting substances. Maintenance, loss, and leak test reporting is done periodically.


Has the institution completed an inventory of significant air emissions from stationary sources on campus?:
Yes

A brief description of the methodology(ies) the institution used to complete its air emissions inventory:

Surveying percentages of the heating plant that has lead boiler, records kept for ozone depletion refrigerant maintenance reports, loss reports, and leak test reports done. Records, maintenance, and surveys on air emissions, ozone depletion, water effluents, hazardous materials and hazardous products.
