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

Magnesium Chloride which is safer for concrete, plants, trees shrubs and turf is given priority on walkways. Sand is also used extensively to provide traction and to reduce the ice melter that is being used.
Snow poles are installed on campus that not only marks sidewalks during snow storms but keeps vehicles and equipment off turf areas, therefore reducing compaction.
