What are some creative ways in which Universities divert run off?

    The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee diverts about 84% of storm water runoff for use around campus. Some of the water will be used in a stream system around campus to water flower beds, native grasses, and sedges while the rest will run into a large bowl designed to swirl water around thick native plants to soak up the water. The remaining water will be drained into the local sewer system. This diversion of run off helps to take stress off local sewer systems as well as saves fresh water that would be used for plants around campus.

    Runoff from storm water is also decreased by green roofs which soak up water that would typically run off buildings and down the drain.
