General Notes:

1. Increase in Storm Drainage (SD) rate caused by the need to make significant modification to increase SD capacity and reduce erosion as a result of campus growth.

2. Increase in Solid Waste rate was caused by increased land fill tipping fees and the campus requirement to have a more comprehensive campus recycling program.

3. Emergency Generator rate added in FY16 to recover costs associated with operating and maintaining 150 emergency generators to ensure compliance with all federal, state and local laws.
