Water Conservation Programs at ITS

Implementing a water conservation program on campus is a proactive and ecologically responsible endeavor that contributes significantly to decreasing water waste and boosting sustainability. that plays a significant role in reducing water wastage and promoting sustainability. Typically, these initiatives involve a variety of actions, such as the installing water-efficient fixtures, promoting responsible water usage practices, and adopting smart irrigation systems. By raising awareness and actively engaging the campus community, these programs encourage students and staff to be conscientious about water consumption. 

ITS successfully implemented over 50 percent of the water conservation program, which includes lake and reservoir management systems, elevated building structures as rainwater storage, rain water harvesting, biopore installation, and long storage channel. ITS has 18 pounds divided into two types: detention ponds and retention ponds. The campus’s lakes and reservoirs are grouped into seven zones. Natural infiltration and runoff water are used to calculate natural conservation. The overall capacity of lakes and reservoirs can meet water needs (1,372.63 m3).

Another program is elevated building structures as rainwater storage. This building design is used in almost all ITS buildings. The elevated structure maintains the function of the water catchment area, causing it to flow easily. Rainwater harvesting is the third program. The main function of rainwater harvesting for the development of urban farming on ITS open land. The fourth program is biopore installation spread across several locations such as the Department of Urban and Regional Planning, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Department of Industrial Engineering, UPMB Building, SAC, and ITS Robotic. The last program is a long storage channel that has a length of about 470 m with a width of 6 m. Long storage channels are built around ITS.
