Less comprehensive policies, plans or guidelines that incorporate green infrastructure

A brief description of the institution’s green infrastructure and LID practices:
The College installed several rain gardens and rainwater retention areas around campus, as well as disconnected many downspouts from the combined sewage and stormwater pipes in order to allow the water to reach these rain gardens. The College also has a permeable parking by its science building. All new parking lots and other constructions involving impermeable surfaces are carefully designed to allow rainwater to be slowed down and diverted to permeable surfaces.

A brief description of the institution’s rainwater management policy, plan, and/or guidelines that supports the responses above:
Because Randolph College sits on a hilly terrain right by the James River, every precaution is taken to avoid excessive rainwater runoff. The College has multiple vegetative and rocky natural walls to slow down and absorb a maximum of rainwater runoff.
