A brief description of the institution’s green infrastructure and LID practices:
When the University initiates new facility construction or major renovation projects, impacts on the surrounding site are minimized as much as possible, and projects are designed to meet or exceed state stormwater quality provision C.3. This is typically accomplished through the use of bioswales and permeable pavers.
Prior to and during the winter rainy season, the Facilities Department (Grounds Maintenance and other staff as required) clean areas around campus storm drain inlets to prevent debris from blocking and or obstructing natural storm water flow from backing up and ponding.
