Water conservation program and implementation

Yessenov University has implemented a water conservation program on campus. As it is known, the Mangystau region, in particular Aktau city, uses the Caspian Sea for its water supply. Thus, the water conservation program plays the most important role in the sustainability of the region. In its turn, Yessenov University has always been aware of water scarcity  and a careful use of water should be spread all over the city.  

  1. Data collection. Yessenov University collects data on current water usage, sources and costs in order to understand where and how water is used on its campus. 
  2. Technology and infrastructure. Yessenov University  has implemented water-efficient technologies and infrastructure such as harvesting systems and smart irrigation controllers. 
  3. Policies. Yessenov University has a policy to encourage water conservation and setting water-saving technologies on campus.

Water Recycling Program Implementation

Yessenov University possesses a number of new infrastructure which requires a big proportion of water for its construction. Thus, the University leadership tends to use water with the economy. Hence, it has its water recycling program on the campus. It has a project to develop a water recycling process. The University is striving to treat water use with minimum waste. Recycled campus water is usually used for irrigation and construction purposes such as avoiding drought on the planned design of a newly built campus area.

Consumption of treated water

Yessenov University has a system for treated water which is typically sourced from the Caspian sea and it is subjected to various treatment methods to remove impurities and contaminants.  Because the University uses the water from the central water supply. The University uses filters for the water coming from taps. It should undergo double-filtering progress before being used for drinking, cooking and even for irrigation.
