Criteria

Part 1

Institution has adopted a stormwater management policy, plan, and/or strategies that mitigate the stormwater runoff impacts of new construction, major renovation, and other projects that increase paved surface area on campus or otherwise significantly change the campus grounds.  

The policy, plan, and/or strategies address both the quantity and quality (or contamination level) of stormwater runoff.  

The policy, plan, and/or strategies cover the entire campus.  While the specific strategies or practices adopted may vary depending on project type and location, this credit is reserved for institutions that mitigate stormwater runoff impacts consistently during new construction.  Implementing a strategy or strategies for only one new development project is not sufficient for this credit. 

Policies adopted by entities of which the institution is part (e.g. state government or the university system) may count for this credit as long as the policies apply to and are followed by the institution. 

Part 2

Institution has adopted a stormwater management policy, plan, or strategies that mitigate the stormwater runoff impacts of ongoing campus operations.  

The policy, plan, or strategies address both the quantity and quality (or contamination level) of stormwater runoff. 

Though specific practices adopted may vary across the campus, the policy, plan, and/or strategies cover the entire institution.  Implementing strategies for only one building or area of campus is not sufficient for this credit.


Applicability

This credit applies to all institutions. 


Scoring

Each part of the credit is scored separately.  Institutions may earn points for new construction and development policies (Part 1), regardless of whether they earn points for having a similar policy for ongoing campus operations (Part 2).  Likewise, an institution that adopted a policy that covers both new construction and ongoing operations would earn both points. 

Part 1

1 point is awarded for having a policy, plan, and/or strategies that meet the criteria outlined above.   

Part 2

1 point is awarded for having a policy, plan, and/or strategies that meet the criteria outlined above.   


Measurement

Timeframe

Report on current policies, plans, and/or strategies.
