FAU Stormwater Management Program

FAU Stormwater Management Program

The goal of the FAU Stormwater Management Program is to eliminate pollution resulting from stormwater discharges. FAU uses a variety of Best Management Practices (BMPs) to ensure that runoff from FAU property and construction sites as well as impervious areas such as paved streets, parking lots, and building rooftops do not adversely affect water quality.

FAU policy specifically prohibits illicit discharges to its stormwater management system. Illicit discharges include, but are not limited to releasing chemicals, oils, gas, antifreeze, fertilizers, trash, debris, and construction sediments to the environment. Those responsible for illicit discharges may be cited under applicable laws and ordinances.

FAU encourages members of the University Community and the General Public to report pollution and to offer suggestions for improving The FAU Stormwater Management Plan.
