Which of the following best describes the institution’s approach to rainwater management?:
Comprehensive policies, plans or guidelines that require LID practices for all new projects

A brief description of the institution’s green infrastructure and LID practices:

MU standard practice requires that all new construction that increases impervious area match pre-construction peak flow conditions. It is a typical goal to provide volume control to mimic the pre-construction conditions. BMPs are designed using nomographs derived from long term rainfall runoff simulations based on local climate data that incorporates actual storm and precipitation characteristics. If the stormwater cannot be effectively managed on site, an offsite location may be selected within the same drainage area.

A brief description of the institution’s rainwater management policy, plan, and/or guidelines that supports the responses above:

We have implemented a stormwater masterplan that includes future locations for BMPs across campus. As funding is available, or as projects are developed that can contribute to this master plan, these BMPs are installed.
