• Data Center - Renovation of Service Building C includes roof and site runoff to subsurface infiltrators.
• Liberty Terrace(New) - Green roof, rain gardens and some porous sidewalks.
• Service Building A renovation – Porous pavement
• Campus Center expansion – Green roof, porous pavement, porous sidewalks.
• Business Building and Collins Circle (New) – Runoff collection to sub-surface infiltration chambers.
Some of the treatment system utilize infiltration and only overflows discharge to the storm sewer system. This includes subsurface infiltration chambers, trench drains, bio-retention, rain gardens, infiltration basins, and subsurface sand filter. Treatment systems that release flows include micro-pool extended detention, open channels, extended detention wet ponds, and pocket ponds.
The University Stormwater Management Policy encourages that whenever possible, runoff is infiltrated into sub-soils with little or no discharges.
There is a green roof on the connector lobby of Liberty Terrace that is visible to the public. The Campus Center Expansion will also have a green roof when completed.
There is currently porous pavement behind Service Building A and on the Purple Path behind SEFCU arena.
There currently are no plans for downspout disconnects. However, if a building is involved in a project, it is looked at. Also, for all new construction, downspouts are connected to sub-surface infiltration systems whenever possible.
A demonstration rain garden was installed at the Alumni House with the Stormwater Coalition and Albany County Cooperative Extension. This treats the roof runoff from the building. There are also two rain gardens at Liberty Terrace that treat the runoff from the refuse structure roof.
• There are two ponds at Liberty Terrace; a micropool extended detention and a pocket detention pond. These ponds treat the runoff prior to release to Indian Pond.
• A micro-pool extended detention pond is used to treat the runoff from the athletic stadium.
• Retention basins for infiltration are used at Tri-Centennial Dr. at Fuller Road, for runoff from Roads and building 25.
• There is an infiltration basin behind the grounds building that treats the runoff from the Vehicle Operations Building and the Grounds Building. An overflow from this basin goes to Indian Pond.
There currently are no bio-swales on the Campus grounds.
Other than those described, the only other management strategy is Indian Pond which has been in place since the development of the Campus. A good portion of the Campus runoff that is not managed by the new systems constructed is directed to Indian Pond for detention. Runoff collected at the Indian Pond is stored and used as the water supply for the Campus irrigation system. An outfall control structure maintains the level of the Pond.
