SAMs Rescinded in Quarter 4, Fiscal Year 2015


The following System Administrative Memorandum was rescinded by the Chancellor as official system policy during Quarter 4 (June, July, and August), Fiscal Year 2015:
AM Number and Name
SAM Number and Name
Date Rescinded
Reason for Rescission
SAM 01.B.01 - Wastewater Capacity
August 21, 2015
SAM 01.B.01 is considered obsolete documentation due to the following factors: (1) The water and wastewater capacity impact rules are different in each municipal jurisdiction; for example, City of Houston and City of Clear Lake both enforce water and wastewater impact fees for new development, but the City of Victoria does not enforce it. (2) If a building is demolished on the UH - Victoria campus and, in the future, the UH - Sugarland campus, there will not be wastewater capacity on reserve, and the reserve could not be transferred to another component campus in another municipal jurisdiction. (3) City of Houston established their wastewater capacity rules in Chapter 47, Article IX of their Code of Ordinances; UH - Main Campus is considered a "service area" with this documentation, so the transfer of reserve capacity is covered under the City of Houston ordinances. However, UH - Victoria and UH - Sugarland are not covered.
Due to the current redundancy in documentation on wastewater capacity for all UH component campuses, the System Facilities Planning and Construction group requested the rescission of
SAM 01.B.01.
