A brief description of the natural wastewater systems used to handle the institution’s wastewater:
The university is working with the City of Sacramento to install natural mechanisms for the treatment of campus stormwater. A number of different mechanisms, such as bioretention planters, rain gardens and bioswales, are being utilized as part of a California Proposition 84 Grant Project.The purpose of the project is to remove contaminants while also recharging campus groundwater supply. Students will be involved during the monitoring phase and the project will become a showcase for stormwater treatment methodologies for the region.
