Environmental Affairs

What we do:

The Environmental Health (EH) Division of EHS assists the University with the classic environmental health issues related to air, water, and land/real estate conditions, working closely with EHS Chemical Hygiene and Recycling divisions.

We assist various University organizations with their air emissions, water quality, and land/real estate environmental health issues by:

  1. Promoting measures and practices to reduce the University’s impacts on air, water, and land/real estate.
  2. Coordinating compliance with permit and regulatory requirements;
  3. Preparing associated reports and related communications;
  4. Keeping required records; and,
  5. Working with regulatory agencies and other organizations on University environmental health matters.


The Environmental Health division continues to assist with permitting, investigation, inspections, monitoring, record-keeping, and reporting on various environmental health-related issues on behalf of the University including:
