Environmental preservation concerns everyone and it is especially important for higher education, which is often viewed as a leader and as a resource for society. University of Texas System, without exception, makes every attempt possible to meet the obligations of voluntary environmental compliance in all areas of their campuses by encouraging others to do the same. This sets the tone and corresponding level of expectation for meeting regulatory requirements.
The EPM program safeguards the University’s liabilities with regulatory oversight for hazardous waste management, hazardous materials spill response and contingency planning, regulatory permitting and reporting, and customer services to include hazardous chemical and radioactive material waste pickup and disposal. The program services are designed to protect the University and surrounding communities from the threat of contamination associated with air, water, hazardous materials, and hazardous wastes.
