We pump wastewater 24/7/365 from the Serra Street sewer but wet wipes often cause issues that clog the pumps and impact all our research. Please don’t flush wipes!!!

There are many references to “our small city” but all the work is focused on a commercial (university) campus that includes buildings and other facilities under centralized control (generally LBRE or Residential and Dining enterprises). The work is really good. But it seems that nothing reaches out to residential facilities that are not under central control, thus may miss the opportunities to address such urban facilities.Yet Stanford does include about 1000 faculty/staff homes that are not under central control. Most of these are single-family homes. I think there are opportunities to expand the range of projects that could be considered by the researchers. This could be started by conversations with Tanya Luhrmann, who chairs the sustainability committee of SCRL. I could help set up such conversations.

@Ali I agree with you on not delegating the partnership task to students… while time consuming, it is essential for the PIs (Faculty and research staff) to manage those relationships
