Water Conservation and Management Policy
Consequent upon the decision taken by the IQAC and subsequent approval of the Managing Committee of the college to formulate Institute Policy on Water Conservation and Management.  Basically, conserving water is an excellent way to save the environment and put off chores. Rainwater harvesting is one of the most efficient and effective ways of conserving water. It is more like the recycling of natural water.

Water Resources in the Institute-
  1. Bore well from where the water is stored in the tank having a capacity of 20,000 litres.
  2. Provision of water purifier system / water filter & coolers which purifies the water for drinking purpose.
  3. For rain water harvesting, we have ground water recharge pits in the college campus. They consume the water into the ground and hence the rain water gets harvested properly.
Save water:
  1. Avoid leakage of water from the taps.
  2. Turn the tap off when not in use especially when you brush your teeth or wash clothes.        
  3. Rainwater harvesting is another method to conserve water.
  4. The water supply should be limited in those areas which enjoys the unlimited water supplies.
The benefits of Water conservation are:
  • Saving money, environment and energy.
  • Protecting the drinking water resources.
  • Reduce or minimize the pollution and health problems.
  • Reduce the need for new waste water treatment facilities.
  • Save the aquatic environment.
How to Manage Water in College
Water conservation and management encompasses the policies, strategies and activities made to manage water as a sustainable resource, to protect the water environment, and to meet current and future human demand, these areas are usually associated with large population centers or agriculture, where water use is high.
Here are ways students can help conserve the world’s most precious resource with little effort and no cost!

  1. Bring a reusable water bottle /cups to dining halls to decrease the amount of cups that need to be washed.
  2. Avoid food trays when possible.
  3. Use a dishwasher (if have one) instead of hand washing to use less running water.      
  4. Only run the dishwasher when there is a full load. We’re also giving you an excuse for not doing dishes.
  5. Garden/Plants need regular supply of water to grow.
  6. Use “leftover” water from a drinking glass or from washing fruit and veggies to water plants.
  7. Water plants in the early morning / late evening to decrease the amount of evaporation.    
  8. Have a leak or drip timely repaired
  9. Schedule showers for post-exercise to avoid taking multiple showers in a day.
  10. Report leaks on campus and in your neighborhood workshop.
  11. Rain water collected at the terrace should be either directed to the water harvesting pits or directed to the play field/garden
