This credit was marked as Not Pursuing so Reporting Fields will not be displayed.

The campus has not implemented strategies/technologies for snow and ice removal on campus. From my knowledge these strategies/technologies are limited and can greatly affect the safety of people and vehicles. We mainly use two products to fight ice and snow on campus Sodium Chloride and Magnesium Chloride. Both of which occur naturally in the soil and have
minimum impact on the environment.
