Which of the following best describes the institution’s approach to rainwater management?:
No written policies, plans or guidelines, but green infrastructure and LID practices are used

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

The University of New Haven employs several green infrastructure and LID practices across campus to alleviate strain on the rain water management system. There are three large underground storm detention systems by Westside Hall, Bartels Hall, and New Hall. In addition, there are several stormwater retention galleries by Westside Hall, KAYO Field, and Botwinik Hall. The University of New Haven built a bioswale adjacent to Bethels Hall to ensure debris and pollution in rainwater does not enter the culvert system.
