Surface water issues are addressed in several ways on campus.
The Surface Water Working Group is a group of staff, faculty, and students from across
campus who work to address a broad range of surface water issues.
Many surface water-related projects have been completed on campus which achieve
multiple, integrated objectives, such as stormwater mitigation, water harvesting,
urban open space, neighborhood buffering, and water sustainability. Further, the UA is a leader in water-related research, outreach, and education.
The Surface Water Master Implementation Plan, completed in April 2009, is comprised of a summary report and two technical appendices.
The report provides an analysis of campus hydrology, assesment of flood impacts, and recommendation for management of surface water at scales ranging from campus-wide mitigation of large storm events to site scale water harvesting.
A summary report is available. The technical reports are larger and available at the PDC office.
This plan addresses water quality and pollution. The Plan is administered by the Department of Risk Management and Safety. (Offsite link to Risk)
