Environmental Protection

Our Environmental Impact

Environmental protection is important to our campus and our community. At University of Houston-Clear Lake, we focus on minimizing our impact on the environment by strictly adhering to appropriate rules and regulations. We encourage all faculty members to recognize their role in our protection efforts and continuously strive to minimize potentially negative effects.


UHCL currently has no air emission generating processes that require an air permit. Activities at UHCL are covered under exemptions such as those for Emergency Generators, Motor Vehicle refueling under the quantities required for Stage II Vapor Recovery, and Laboratory & Research activities.

Storm Water

UHCL is in the process of implementing a TCEQ mandated Storm Water Management Plan (SWMP) as a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4).  

The City of Pasadena, City of Houston, Harris County, and Clear Lake Water Authority all have vested interest in stormwater quality, and have their own stormwater permits encompassing their city or jurisdiction limits.
