A brief description of the institution's indoor air quality plan, policy, and/or practices:

The University of Texas at San Antonio has in-place an Environmental Monitoring Safety Plan which contains the rational and criteria for the monitoring program, extent and frequency of monitoring and measurement, procedures for laboratory analysis, program implementation procedures, and reporting. This plan covers confined space monitoring, air sampling, drinking water testing, swimming pool testing, soil sampling, Spill Prevention Control & Countermeasures Plan (SPCCP) for oil based products, Spill Prevention and Response Plan and Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) for construction sites.

This Environmental Management Safety Plan applies to all UTSA owned, leased or operated properties and facilities. All personnel involved in work or projects which could have a detrimental effect on the environment are required to become familiar with all applicable federal, state and local rules.

This Plan is reviewed periodically, but at least every 3 years for compliance with the most recent applicable federal, state and local rules and regulations.
