Less comprehensive policies, plans or guidelines that incorporate green infrastructure

A brief description of the institution’s green infrastructure and LID practices:

Of 13,395,000 cubic feet of stormwater currently discharged by the University campus, 17% is managed by a range of stormwater management installations (more details below). High impact projects that are currently under development include a 22.9K sq ft vegetated roof and a retention basin included in the new University Center building. A 2012 stormwater master plan recommends that the University adopt various best management practices going forward, with a primary focus on reducing the effective impervious area of campus. These practices include the use of pervious pavement replacement, pervious parking lot replacement, vegetated roofs, bioswales, rain gardens and porous landscape detention areas.
