The University has established programs and procedures in place designed to protect the environment.
EH&S has primary responsibility for providing guidelines regarding water, soil and air pollution prevention in compliance with applicable federal, state and local regulations. EH&S acts as the UW’s liaison with regulatory agencies.
We have many permits and guidelines in place to ensure that University activities support environmental protection and regulatory compliance with respect to stormwater, wastewater, air quality and hazardous materials.
Pollution prevention is designed to reduce, eliminate or prevent pollution at its source. Efforts towards pollution prevention at the UW include treatment by generator, universal waste management and recycling.
