Water Recycling System

The University constructed and installed a water recycling system for reuse in the sanitation and garden sprinkler systems.  The sprinklers are used for watering plants to reduce the problem of dependency on raw water when there is lack of water.  The treated wastewater has been conditioned to have appropriate qualities for use and meets standard requirements for utility water for recycled water.  Each year, SU is able to recycle water at the amount of 317,880 m3/yr.  This reduced the use of tap water by 20%.  The recycled water is used in the sanitary system throughout 73 buildings accounting for 60% of the buildings in the university.  Recycled water is also transported for use for watering plants in 24 garden sprinkler locations throughout the university which is 70% of all the green areas that needs watering.

Water Conservation Program Implementation

Water Conservation Program Implementation

Suranaree University of Technology (SUT) has 3 water wells with overall storage capacity of 1.50 million cubic meters for harvesting rain and producing piped water, respectively.  High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plates are used for leak reduction and underground water tanks are built at SUT buildings for rain storage.  In addition, 4 wells are dug underground to store groundwater at the rate of 20,000 cubic meters per year, reducing the use of piped water by 1.5%.
