The Campus Ecology Project has, for years now, been compiling this top level resource about sustainability on college and university campuses. The 120 or so from this current year have just been added.
Many of the case studies contain insights into planning, and planning processes. Since sustainability is by nature "integrated," SCUPers will find many useful lessons learned in Campus Ecology's database of case studies, which is nearing 1,400 entries.
The following illustrates the nature and formatting of case studies. It's about a water project at Eastern Mennonite University:
Eastern Mennonite University, private, 4-year, 1500, Harrisonburg, Virginia.
In June of 2012 Eastern Mennonite University completed construction of a 100,000 gallon storm water management cistern. The $90,000 project harvests water runoff draining from houses, buildings, roads, and parking lots across 15 acres of university property. The storm water collected in the cistern provides water for four athletic fields in addition to other campus vegetation. The cistern also acts as an aid in flood control for the Park Woods forest which currently suffers from large quantities of storm water that erode intermittent streams running through the woods. Use of the cistern is predicted to collect around 1.7 million gallons of storm water for use as irrigation, saving EMU a projected $3825 annually, versus purchasing city water for irrigation.
