Neutralization Tank

Delehanty is one of the few buildings on campus with a neutralization tank to dispose of weak acid solutions.  UVM Environmental Health and Safety and the UVM Geology Department have designed a specific Sink Disposal Agreement, approved by the City of Burlington. Contact us for specifics as to which acids are appropriate for disposal in this system. Only lab sinks with blue plumbing below the sink lead to the neutralization tank on the first floor. No hazardous waste other than weak acids may be poured down these drains in Delehanty.

Cosmo Lab (Rm 305)

This lab is a clean room that is only accessible by lab personnel, via electronic key FOB entry. Only the vestibule can be accessed by non-lab emergency personnel. Arrangements can be made with Paul Bierman in the Geology department to access the lab.
