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:

Stormwater management initiatives used at all NSCC campuses include grading parking lots so stormwater can run-off into vegetated areas. Some campuses use cisterns to collect the stormwater and use it for irrigation of gardens; while other campuses use swales to collect stormwater run-off where it is filtered and directed to retention ponds. Any work that is to be done must be completed to provincial guidelines.
