In 1996, Illinois State University received a containment permit from the Illinois Department of Agriculture for construction of chemical rinsate structure. This building was designed to handle the safe storage of all of the University's lawn care products. In addition, all loading, mixing, and washing of spray equipment is performed in this building. The building is designed to contain any spills, and in the event of a fire the building is designed to hold the runoff from fire fighting efforts.
Chemical Rinsate is located on N. Main St., next to the Parking & Transportation building and the Nite Ride building.
