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

13 grounds department employees are on call 24/7 to plow and/or brush campus parking lots and sidewalks. The buildings are hand-shoveled and ice melt is used on all ramps and at all doors. Parking lots receive road salt at 0.003lbs/sf, sidewalks receive road salts at 0.06lbs/sf, buildings receive blended ice melt (safe on vegetation and concrete) at 0.02lbs/sf and liquid de-icer on buildings and sidewalks is all natural and biodegradable (1gal/500sf).
