The St Joe River can get pretty low in the summer; will that affect the hydro-generation?
Greg Koehler
01:02:47
If you have any questions along the way - please type them here in the chat and we'll get to as many as possible toward the end of this presentation.
Hilary Searcy

Woohoo! I love this!
Paul Kempf
01:04:10
The river level does vary, but the hydro project accounts for reserved flows to the East Race, West Race and over the dam with the balance of water going to the hydroelectric plant. Level measuring controls stage the 10 small hydro turbines on line based on head level. Production during lower flow periods is still significant and likely is greater than 50% of the facilities capacity. Sizing and number of turbines was based on modeling and historical flow data from the river to optimize the project.
Brett’s iPhone
01:05:31
great would like to hear more about water/hydro and also reusable solar
Anne Pillai
01:06:11
You don't want cardboard from homes, correct?
Samuel Rund
01:06:19
Could you provide more info on why cardboard recycling value going up vs say plastic which I believe price has collapsed
Allison Mihalich

Carol Mullaney
01:07:26
Anne, no we don't want people to bring cardboard from home. But we encourage you to effectively recycle your cardboard in your home recycling. If you receive packages on campus, it helps greatly for you to break them down first.
Matthew Sahd
01:09:20
How will increased renewable projects affect electricity generation from gas on campus? Are there plans to install carbon capture facilities or further reduce emissions in that field?
Matthew Sahd
01:09:27
And will campus recycling requirements be changed with price instability?
Maureen Shacklette
01:09:45
Is the Moreau module for the fall or the spring?
Paul Kempf
01:14:43
Renewable generation will likely offset electricity we purchase from the grid which is produced by an array of fuel sources. If memory serves our local provider I&M is currently producing electricity that is sourced 56% nuclear, 6% renewable, 11% natural gas and 27% coal. As we move to more geothermal sources heating and cooling energy renewable electricity will offset to some degree our use of natural gas. Carbon capture is not yet a perfected technology and not easily implemented on sources of our size. Our long range planning tracks all such technologies and hopes of them to advance and become viable options in the future.
Novita Liangga Kumala
01:15:07
Do you also track whether there is an increase of Food waste now that food waste can be used for energy? Am thinking whether this is affecting people’s behaviour towards food as well…
Samuel Rund
01:18:55
Could paper and dirty cardboard be diverted to the biodigestor?
Lisa Town
01:18:55
In terms of locally sourced food; will the Campus Garden be available again this year?
Anne Pillai
01:18:59
Hot and cold water use on the meters or just water in general?
Paul Kempf
01:19:28
Anne, both hot and cold, hence 25 buildings, two meters each building.
Anne Pillai
01:19:55
ENERGY WEEK WILL BE THE LAST WEEK OF OCT!!!
zabezapf
01:20:02
When we use ND Catering, what type of leftover food is forwarded to other organizations for people to eat? What type of food (or preparations) is used to create energy and what type goes straight to landfill?

maximizing student engagement in their residence halls--in terms of water usage, cardboard recycling, inspiring food waste and energy attention, etc.--grab the students where they are "at home," and build habits to last their lifetime!
Jose Chiquito Galvan
01:21:51
Priority: developing and fortifying the local food system so that 100% of our food at ND is locally sourced, closing the loop so that even food waste stays on campus or in South Bend
Arturo Tablada
01:22:11
Energy star appliances, LEED-Gold certification on all new construction and renovations, solar on roofs where possible, campus gardens in some areas currently used as open land
Cheryl Schlimpert
01:22:12
Where will I be able to find these links later?
Karen Clay
01:22:46
eliminating disposable dishes and straws on campus - this not only has an immediate impact but instills good practices for students after they leave campus. The to-go containers at campus eateries is a great example and should be expanded to become a regular practice among all faculty, staff, and students
Jeanne Bowen
01:23:08
Provide clear communication to all employees on what is waste and what may be recycled, and providing right-sized containers in all office spaces to facilitate each person's recycling behavior. Provide clear and consistent training to housekeeping staff, too.
Sara Ermeti
01:23:22
method for collecting coffee grounds from dept coffee makers to use in campus gardens or elsewhere

Giovanna
01:26:10
Will there be signage stating what goes in the blue recycle containers the regular waste containers?
Larry Richey
01:26:36
What does the University current do with electronic waste? Where does it go when collected? Is it recycled? Examples of electronic waste are old scientific instruments, damaged motors, flat screen monitors, etc.
