For construction disturbances of greater than one acre, the state Department of Environmental Conservation requires planning and monitoring of stormwater mitigation. The college hires an engineer to design a stormwater mitigation pan, and to inspect the implementation of that plan at regular intervals. For construction disturbances less than one acre, the college is not required to mitigate stormwater runoff, but it does so anyway by requiring the contractor to install stormwater protection (silt fencing, hay bales, check dams, filter fabric, storm catch basin protection, etc.) which the college inspects at regular intervals.
We have two. One is located at the Town Houses and the other is located at Walker Field House Parking lot .
Two retention ponds were installed around a remediated waste dump on the Vassar Farm.
"Rain gardens" (vegetated swales) have been installed in two parking area on campus.
The college has begun to create a stormwater master plan.
