A brief description of the snow and ice removal program, policy, or practice:

In an effort to keep as much melt as possible from entering the stormwater system, snow is removed to adjacent green areas whenever possible (ex along sidewalks). When large areas such as parking lots need clearing, the snow is trucked to our campus compost facility (Schaffer Farm) and allowed to melt into the ground. Traditional ice-melt is only used on steps and ramps, all other areas are treated with grit limestone.
