A brief description of the snow and ice removal program, policy, or practice:

Landscaping consults with Environmental Health & Safety annually in advance of severe weather warnings. Ice and snow are an infrequent event in South Texas, but despite the low threat, special precautions are taken so that Landscaping does not use chemicals or solids that threaten the health of Waller Creek and the campus's other natural features. Plain sand is usually the first safety measure deployed.
