SDG 6.3: Water usage and care

SDG 6.3.1

Treatment waste water

The wastewater from the bathrooms is collected by pipes to the sedimentation and treatment basins located at the outskirts of the campus, and after the sedimentation stage, the wastewater is discharged into the public piping network of the Ministry of Works. As for the waste in sedimentation basins, it is transported periodically throughout the year for treatment outside the compound. 

SDG 6.3.2

Processes to prevent polluted water entering the water system

The university for its construction project incorporated architectural elements on the campus in which all the requirements related to the surrounding environment were developed and studied, including the lack of a source for use and drinking water, and the absence of an infrastructure that would cover the needs of the buildings included in the project

SDG 6.3.3

Drinking water for students, staff and visitors

The university buildings are located in an area known for the scarcity of drinking water sources and its source is the water company affiliated with the Ministry of Energy and Water. Accordingly, a special network has been developed that starts from the main line and is distributed over the upper tanks in each building. In addition, all floors are provided with distribution points for drinking water continuously to serve students and university staff. 

SDG 6.3.4

Building standards to minimize water usage

Each of the project buildings has been equipped with separate bathrooms for men and women, as well as equipped with washbasins and the necessary cleaning materials for each wash. The bathrooms were distributed on all floors

SDG 6.3.5

Landscapes to minimize water usage

The university has built landscapes to minimize water use. Drought tolerant plants have been grown. Even when the rain stops, these plants are tolerant to these weather conditions, so they survive dry conditions while adding color and texture to our gardens.
