Water/ Sewage

Water/ Sewage

To become more sustainable the amount of water going both into and out of the school through the pipe network should be reduced. The processes involved in water treatment are often poorly understood and underestimated. They are energy intensive and expensive.

Schools have the opportunity to reduce the amount of water used by becoming more water efficient and water can also be supplied from rainwater. There are also opportunities to reduce the amount of water going into the drainage system by incorporating Sustainable Drainage Systems that can deal with storm water by increasing infiltration and retention of water

What should I do?

Consider amount of rainfall, space for collection and storage and use of water at the design stage.
