  1. ALUFS006 Increased Agroforestry - Response from ACES

    Dean Kidwell responded to the iWG transmittal:

    Ximing,

    Thank you for sending this information to us. We are exploring the details surrounding these recommendations and will respond after our inquiry phase has been completed. 

    I appreciate your efforts. 

    Thank you,

    Kim

  2. ALUFS005 VetMed Parking Recommendation - Transmitted

    Following the completion of iWG assessment for ALUFS005 VetMed Parking, the recommendation was transmitted to Associate Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs, Lowa Mwilambwe, and Campus Parking Director, Marty Paulins.

  3. ALUFS006 Increased Agroforestry - Transmitted

    Following the completion of iWG assessment for ALUFS006 Increased Agroforestry, the recommendation was transmitted to Dean Kimberlee Kidwell of the College of Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences.

    See iWG assessment of ALUFS006 Increased Agroforestry attached, saying, "Work with the university landscape architect, Brent Lewis, to develop a plan for adding trees along the Embarras, including costs and requirements, and supporting implementation."

    See SWATeam Recommendation ALUFS006 Increased Agroforestry here.

  4. ALUFS005 VetMed Parking Recommendation - Submittal

    The ALUFS SWATeam submitted a recommendation to the iWG, proposing:

    "A redesign of the VetMed parking lot (F27) to reduce runoff to the south, thus preventing runoff from flooding the Dairy Farm."

    See attached the SWATeam recommendation ALUFS005 VetMed Parking complete with comments from ALUFS SWATeam members.

    An iCAP Working Group assessment of this recommendation began on June 7, 2019.

  5. ALUFS006 Increased Agroforestry - Submittal

    The ALUFS SWATeam submitted a recommendation to the iWG proposing that the university: 

    "Obtain more agroforestry by increasing trees campus-wide. Initial focus can be along the Embarras river between 1st Street and Airport Road (CR 1100 N), where approximately 32 acres of riparian forest buffer could be planted. Additionally, general addition of trees to campus proper, including on parking lots."

    See attached the SWATeam recommendation ALUFS006 Increased Agroforestry complete with comments from ALUFS SWATeam members.

    An iCAP Working Group assessment of this recommendation began on June 7, 2019.

  6. Water006 Lot F23 Monitoring - Submittal

    The WSW SWATeam submitted a recommendation to the iWG, stating: 

    "The Water/Stormwater SWATTeam recommends that instrumentation to monitor the quality and quantity of runoff from parking lot F23 should be installed in the storm sewer carrying runoff from the lot. An instrumentation vault was installed at the southeast corner of the lot (where the storm sewer leaves the lot) several years ago, but no instrumentation installed. In order to demonstrate the impact of Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI), this instrumentation should be installed and operational for at least one year before GSI is installed on the lot to provide a baseline to compare the post -installation runoff quality and quantity. We suggest a pressure transducer to record continuous water level (providing the flow rate using a calibrated stage-flow rating), a water-quality multiprobe with sensors for: turbidity, nitrate, pH, dissolved oxygen, temperature, specific conductivity, fluorescent dye (which will be used to develop the stage-flow rating). The location would also need a data logger to record the measurements, and auxiliary components such as power supply and shelter."

    See attached the SWATeam recommendation Water006 Lot F23 Monitoring complete with comments from WSW SWATeam members.

    An iCAP Working Group assessment of this recommendation began on June 7, 2019.
