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

Stormwater is simply rainwater and snowmelt. It's important on our campus because stormwater takes pollutants on the ground and transport them via the storm drain to our creeks and rivers. The University’s Storm Water Management Program is designed to minimize this pollution and improve water quality in our receiving streams. The University's Storm Water Management Program is composed of a total 46 best management practices (BMPs). The BMPs are performed over the 5 year permitting cycle.
