A brief description of the institution's stormwater management initiatives:

The University of Mount Union has a storm water management initiative in place for both new development projects and all on-going campus operations. The new development project initiative focuses on the use of a comprehensive storm water pollution control plan. Components of the plan include the use of silt fencing, inlet protectin using wire mesh and geotextile fabric, and sediment traps. All stock piled soils are seeded to reduce erosion.

The on-going campus ooperation initiative includes the construction of bio-retention swales, underground detention systems and above ground detetion ponds. Permeable pavement systems are an additional part of our storm water management plan.
