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

For the most part, we plow snow to areas where runoff will not cause a problem as it melts. SOU uses Ice Away produced by Coastwide Laboratories. Their website states that Ice Away is safe for use on concrete and metal; is less toxic than baking soda and non-toxic to children; NSF approved for Food Service; will not harm trees, shrubs, lawns or other vegetation; and is CMA registered for an environmentally safer product.
