To manage the almost 3 feet of rain that has fallen on the campus over the past 6 months, the Stormwater Management team of Facilities Services has been busy making sure all grates, inlets, drains and infrastructure is operating at full capacity. UT Stormwater is permitted from the EPA to manage all the rain that falls on campus in a specific manner.
In this permit, all new built space on campus must manage the first inch of rainfall that falls on each site, and some of the newest buildings on campus have some of the latest technology to manage this. The Terrace Avenue Garage is formatted with an oil water separator pictured leftwhich functions by collecting all the rainwater from the garage and separating out any greases, motor oils, or other floatables and filtering it out from the stormwater to ensure the water leaving the garage is as clean as possible.
The Mossman complex is equipped with a manufactured water quality treatment device, which has a series of grates and chambers that filter out things like cups, bottles, leaves and debris.
These materials are collected and removed every few months to prevent backup. Student Union Phase II features a rain water harvesting and purifying system that allows rainwater to be captured, purified and used for things like irrigation. Dogwood and Magnolia residence halls also feature similar rainwater harvesting. However, this water goes through a multistage filter process to remove contaminants and sediments, passes a UV light to eliminate any pathogens, and is stored and used for flushing toilets, irrigation and laundry.
All of these devices help insure a safer, healthier, greener and more sustainable campus. UT stormwater always needs your help. Remember, if you see dirty water, pollution, or suspicious activity of campus stormwater or infrastructure, report it. If you have any questions about any stormwater issues, or if you see something that should be reported, please see stormwater.
