A brief description of the institution’s green infrastructure and LID practices:
The University of Ottawa has an agreement with the City that insists that there is zero impact on the environment from water run-off. As such, the university has included in its site approval plan the zero impact principle.
Above and beyond the campus sewer system, each rooftop at the University of Ottawa has a storm water management mechanism to restrict flow during heavy rain activities.
