Internal Quality Assurance Cell


Life without water is unimaginable. To survive and flourish clean water is a must. It’s a gift from mother nature to human kind. So respect and protect the natural water resources before it’s too late.

"Thousands have lived without LOVE, not one without Water"

- W.H. Auden (1907-1973)
Water conservation advocates preserving, controlling, and ensuring the development of clean water resources of all types (surface as well as groundwater). It also includes the prevention of pollution that abuses and contaminates water resources. It stresses all the measures, strategies, and policies that promise to fairly manage the natural resources of consumable water.

Integral University is extremely conscious of the importance of water conservation and adopts all such measures and strategies that take good care of water usage and prevent the wastage of water in the entire university campus. To meet ever increasing demand for water, at present and future, University stays proactive in placing efforts to conserve water resources as far as possible.

Below are the provisions, practices, and facilities endorsed and established by the university for water conservation.

  • Rainwater Harvesting (RWH) System
  • Sewage Treatment Plant (STP)
  • Sensor-based Water Tanks
  • Water Recharge Wells
  • Construction of Bunds
  • Grounded Bore-Wells

To ensure the prevention of water wastage University hires full-time plumbers for performing maintenance work of the water distribution system which ran throughout the campus.

For the re-utilization of wastewater, Integral university has established its own Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) within its premises. The STP plant has a capacity of 1.5 MLD (Million Litter Discharge).

The University has implemented Rain Water Harvesting (RWH) system which has laid 0.5 km long channels with appropriate gradients for water flow without stagnation. Each of the university buildings is equipped with a separate drainage pipe that carries rooftop rainwater which is filtered and stored in sumps for re-utilization. University also has constructed bunds of varying depths at different locations in the campus for water harvesting purposes.

Besides all these measures, the university sensitizes its stockholders and public to stay conscious about water conservation through promoting and celebrating events on water conservation and sustainable development programs.
