The institute being situated near the lake side, water table is good. Being located in the city sub-urban area, there is no municipal water supply. The institute depends on ground water for all its water needs. Hence, efficient usage of available water and water conservation measures are adopted. The daily requirement of water in the campus is around 50000 liters.
The following measures are taken for the conservation of water:
Institute has taken maximum steps to harvest rain water inside the campus
|S. No||Location||Quantity||Size of each pit||Used for|
|1||Block 1||6||2.7 m3||Roof top rain water|
|2||Block 2||8||2.7 m3||Roof top rain water|
|3||Block 3||6||2.7 m3||Roof top rain water|
|4||Block 4||7||2.7 m3||Roof top rain water|
Bore well water is used to provide the sufficient amount of water to meet the needs of all stake holders and employees. it is recharged by rain water.
|Bore well Details|
|S. No||Type of Well||Depth (feet)||Water Level (feet)||Water (inches)||Motor and Pump Capacity)||Water Delivered by the Pump|
|1||Bore||800||450||3||7.5 hp & 15 stage||8000 Liters / Hour|
Two underground tanks with the capacity of 60,000 liters each is constructed as a central system and also overhead tanks on top of the building. A contour bund is created as the boundary for all rain water harvesting pits for the passage and percolation of rain water.
|Water Tank Details|
|S. No||Type of Tank||Tank capacity (Liters)||Quantity||Function|
|1||Underground Tank||60,000||2||Bore well water stored|
|2||Over Head Tank||5,000||1||Bore well water distributed|
|3||Over Head Tank||3,000||1|
|4||Over Head Tank||3,000||1|
|5||Over Head Tank||3,000||1||RO water distributed|
|6||Recycled Water (STP) underground tank||35,000||1||Water distribution for garden|
|7||Waste waste storage in underground tank||35,000||1||Water waste stored|
In this campus 49,000 liters of water demand is for college smooth functioning. Total water demand is being met by extracting from ground through bore well and is naturally replenished (being situated lake side), also recharged with bunds and harvesting pits. Total waste water produced from the campus is treated with centrally constructed decentralized sewage treatment plant (STP). This decentralized waste water treatment plant is installed with capacity of 2000 liters per hour . The waste water after treatment is proposed to be utilized effectively for gardening purpose. This will incident ally drastically reduce the usage of fresh water. Approximate estimation given below for the information.

|S. No||Type of plant and tree||Quantity||Use of water (Liters)||Water used (Liters / Day)|
|2||Flower plants and shrubs||25,000||0.3||7,500|
The Bore well water is pumped into two ground storage tank which has a capacity 60,000 liters each and then water is pumped to the overhead tanks of 11,000 liters capacity . Further the water is distributed to washrooms, construction, canteen, workshops and floor cleaning through well laid pipe network. The water from overhead tank is distributed to all taps across the campus.
IARE has its own two mineral water (RO) plant with the capacity of 750 liters per hour each. Water coolers are installed in all blocks to provide the clean drinking water to all the staff and students in the institute.
Waste water usage is reduced using low pressure flushes and water is supplied through a separate set of distribution pipes. Entire distribution system is well supervised by Civil works committee to ensure that there are no leakages and wastage of precious water through joints, valves etc. All the stakeholders of the institute are well educated to use water economically and efficiently. Our own institution plumbers maintain the plumbing system. Whenever the problems are identified immediate actions are taken for restrict wastage of water.
