Which of the following best describes the institution’s approach to rainwater management?:
No written policies, plans or guidelines, but green infrastructure and LID practices are used

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

State and local government agencies mandate stormwater mitigation rules, which define required efforts for stormwater quantity detention and quality improvement with review and approval by the local jurisdiction. The most significant of these is the extensive use of bio-filtration cells for improvement of water quality and detention. These are required as permanent fixtures on essentially all new projects. Recent examples include:
The Station at Mill Point - four large bio-retention basins
Hunt Softball Facility - contains 16 bio-retention basins
South Campus - one large dry detention pond
Historic Neighborhood Parking Lot - underground storage device which limits run-off rates and collects sediment
McMichael Science Parking Lot – one large bio-retention basin designed to attract pollinator species
Schar Hall, Steers Pavilion – underground storage device which limits run-off rates and collects sediment
Schar Center – wet detention basin
Koenigsberger Learning Center - bio-retention basin

All storm drainage water is directed (whenever topographical elevations permit) into three existing stormwater detention ponds, which are used as the primary irrigation source for the campus. This system does not address all of the university’s property.
