Which of the following best describes the institution’s approach to rainwater management?:
Comprehensive policies, plans or guidelines that require LID practices for all new projects

A brief description of the institution’s green infrastructure and LID practices:
Purdue University created its Sustainable Stormwater Modification Design in 2009, which includes key recommendations and strategies for long-term water stewardship with campus development. The plan was updated in 2020 by developing a stormwater management "kit of parts," which presented green infrastructure options that can be incorporated into future capital improvement projects within various campus landscape typologies. Each element was designed to meet County Stormwater Standards, reduce runoff entering the drainage system at critical points, and provide co-benefits beyond stormwater management. The kit was integrated into larger open space planning efforts to guide the selection of appropriate stormwater best management practices for a given campus typology, open space feature, or capital project.
