Unversity Of California, Merced To Have Green Campus

Planners are mapping out the new campus with enviromental concerns at the forefront.

"Planners of the University of California, Merced, campus say it was built and will operate around the concept of sustainable development -- an eco-friendly idea that growth can be maintained without depleting finite resources.

From a 1.9 million-gallon storage tank for chilled water to a 700-foot tunnel that pipes utilities, the campus is on the cutting edge of an international green building movement."
