topography

Water flows predominantly east to west across the campus. An exception is a low-lying area or bowl around the Pond defined by the Fine Arts Center and the area east of the Chapel and Library; water from this area flows into a ravine justsouth of Campus Center Way. While the Pond is not engineered for storm water collection, it serves this function by default. The resulting sedimentation impacts the Pond‘s water quality and appearance –adverse effects for what should be one of the campus‘ most picturesque features.
