Yes

Does the institution have a policy, plan, and/or strategies to reduce stormwater runoff from ongoing campus operations? :
Yes

A brief description of the institution's stormwater management initiatives:

Stormwater Runoff, the water that falls on the UAS campus is part of the Auke Lake Drainage, and the surface streams and underground water passages all enter the lake and from there makes its way via the outflow to the ocean. We maintain a thickly vegetated band along the lake shore to intercept any suspended solids, and all the stormwater or snowmelt from the parking lots and paved surfaces is channeled through an oil and water separator before being released.
