Texas Woman's University is subject to a number of federal, state and local rules and regulations related to the University's impact on the natural environment. TWU has instituted various policies and procedures to meet these requirements. Examples of areas where the University could impact the environment include the disposal of wastes, discharge of wastewater, air emissions, chemical/material storage, and storm water discharge.
Texas Woman's University also strives to reduce its impact on the environment above and beyond what is required by law.
TWU will soon be implementing an Environmental Management System (EMS) which will help to ensure both regulatory compliance and continuous improvement of the university's environmental performance.
