OP-T2-22: Snow and Ice Removal
Has the institution implemented technologies or strategies to reduce the environmental impacts of snow and ice removal?:
A brief description of the snow and ice removal program, policy, or practice:
In 2010, CSU purchased smaller equipment; able to sand the campus instead of relying on ice melt. And in 2011 the university built a contained storage facility for ice melt to prevent exposure to the elements.
During the winter season, Grounds is responsible for all snow and ice removal. Our primary emphasis is to maintain as safe a walking surface as possible.
