Has the institution implemented technologies or strategies to reduce the environmental impacts of snow and ice removal?:
Yes

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

Our policy is to remove as much snow and ice as possible early in the day - to allow the sun to heat up the black-top surfaces and encourage the melting of any remaining snow or ice.
Where additional melting is required, we use magnesium chloride as the environmental impact is less than other products.
