The Springfield campus is sited in Greene County. It is surrounded on three sides by primarily residential property with commercial
property adjoining the campus on the north. Drinking water, gas, and electricity are
obtained through Springfield City Utilities. Wastewater is discharged into the Springfield sanitary sewage system. Solid waste
is disposed of at the Springfield sanitary landfill.
Stormwater from the campus is controlled by stormwater basins located throughout the
campus to reduce the rate of stormwater runoff. The stormwater flows into Jordan and
Wilson Creeks, eventually entering the James River and Table Rock Lake.
A power plant located on-campus consists of four boilers and generates steam for heating
and air conditioning. These boilers predominately combust pipeline grade natural gas
with No. 2 diesel oil used as a “back-up” when natural gas supplies are curtailed.
