  • utilities map and infrared map of the vet school

    A drone flew over the Cornell campus this month. By using infrared cameras, it spots steam leaks that are not otherwise visible, giving the Cornell utilities staff time to repair or replace them in a more timely fashion.  The photo shows two problem spots by the Vet Med Center and the East Campus Research Facility from an earlier flyover this year.

  • Peterson Green Parking Lot Interpretive Sign

    At first glance, this parking lot may look like any other, but there are hidden processes beneath the surface. Porous asphalt and the bioswale in the center of the parking lot allow stormwater to drain into the soil beneath the pavement.  The Peterson Parking Lot was designed to slow and store stormwater, while filtering pollutants, watering the bioswale, and recharging groundwater.
