Stormwater Management

As an operator of a municipal separate stormwater system (MS4), WVU administers a stormwater management program that employs best practices put forth by the federal Environmental Protection Agency to reduce stormwater runoff and filter out pollutants. As part of this program, WVU has been installing various stormwater features to collect and filter stormwater during weather events. Locations include: 

Low-flow Fixtures

Many campus building utilize faucet aerators to add air to water exiting a faucet. Low-flow showerheads are also used in residence halls. Many of these fixtures can reduce water consumption by 50% when compared to traditional flow fixtures. 

40+ rain gardens used on the Morgantown campus for storm water management
