Building standards to minimize water use in university

Water rationing procedures inside the university campus are as follows:

  • The university carries out periodic maintenance and replacement of the damaged water taps and connections.
  • Using Water Saving Aerators are innovative water saving solutions for washbasins, these aerators are designed with the purpose of dispensing water at defined flow rate say 2 to 8 Litres Per minute.
  • Providing spare parts for urgent repairs and saving water.
  • Regular observations of all the toilets and water supply places.
  • Rapid response in case of emergency reports water leakage and taking the necessary measures until the required repairs are completed.
  • Efficient lavatory faucets that use a maximum of 6 LPM can reduce a sink’s water flow up to 30% or more than standard faucets without negatively affecting the performance.
  • Installing efficient lavatory faucets and faucet lavatory faucets use 20% of the indoor water consumption.
  • Dual flush water efficient toilets,Saves up to 75% of water, Water usage as low as 4 litres per flush, Less water usage on each flush
  • Efficient water closets, whether single- or dual-flush, use less than 6LPF, which offers more saving to water.
  • Water closets flush use 25% of the indoor water consumption.
  • Reduce water for irrigation by reducing the area covered by grass and utilizing native plants in landscaping.
  • Reduce portable water consumption using sprinkler/drip irrigation system for all the surrounding landscaping around the palace.
  • Install appropriate rainwater harvesting and AC condensate collection and reuse system, to be used in WC flushing instead of potable water. 
  • Reduce potable water usage by supporting the water management in the facility using water meters and identifying water saving opportunities. Provide continuous tracking to support water efficiency and reduce potable water costs and associated adverse environmental impacts.
