The EH&S Surface Water Quality program assists campus in surface water pollution prevention and in the restoration of Strawberry Creek on the central campus. Program activities include providing compliance assistance to campus on watershed management and storm water regulations, sampling and analyzing storm water, assessing sources of storm water pollutants on campus, stenciling storm drains and developing educational guidelines and programs. Since 1987, EH&S has coordinated the Strawberry Creek Environmental Quality Committee, the Chancellor's Advisory Committee on the restoration of Strawberry Creek. If you have any questions about surface water quality or Strawberry Creek, contact Tim Pine.
