A brief description of the snow and ice removal program, policy, or practice:
During the winter season, the campus has snow removal from 6am to 3:30pm, Monday through Friday. This is determined by the ground supervisor. Weather related emergencies exist when two or more inches of wet snow have fallen or when three or more inches of light now has fallen. This also includes sleet and ice cover conditions.
Snow removal includes plows, ice chippers, shoveling, and deicing agents. The campus is currently searching to reduce its carbon footprint by reducing the paths plowed down to necessity.
