Stormwater Management Strategy

Rainwater that falls on SFU’s campus becomes a resource that has to be properly managed to preserve surrounding natural systems and protect physical assets on campus. Proper management of rainwater can help reduce downstream erosion, protect local biodiversity, mitigate risks from climate change, and have a positive economic impact for the university. Through engagement with the SFU community and our neighbouring stakeholders, SFU’s consultants have identified seven main objectives related to how SFU manages its rainwater, while proposing 15 action items to guide SFU through the implementation of the strategy. The 3-Phase approach addresses the questions: what do you have, what do you want, and how will you get there?
