Storm Water Management Plan

Lloyd M. Wundrock, Environmental Safety Officer, Risk Management Services
April 7, 2017

The University of Arizona, Department of Risk Management Services recently submitted a revised and updated Storm Water Management Plan (SWMP) to the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ). The SWMP is required by ADEQ to comply with current environmental regulations. The UA's SWMP describes university operations, identifies targeted potential sources of stormwater pollution from the campus and adopts Best Management Practices (BMPs) or pollution control measures to reduce the discharge of pollutants into stormwater run-off. These efforts ensure that university activities are not a source of pollution, negatively impacting surface waters that flow through the campus and eventually to the City of Tucson.

The area of the UA campus is greater than 73 percent impervious surfaces. Therefore, when it rains, surface water flow is generated. This "stormwater" that discharges to surface streets and other conveyances must be free of pollutants.

The revised UA, SWMP may be accessed by following the link:
