●Water Conservation/Recycling Program On Campus
All the buildings of the University of Warith Al-Anbiyaa have a separate sewerage system, for wastewater and for clean water. Rainwater is thus collected from the roofs of the buildings and is then discharged into the local ponds and canals around the buildings. Thus, the rainwater is collected from the roof, parking areas, and other places at the campus and discharged the rainwater into the ponds and channels at our campus. Rainwater is mainly used for watering the green lands at the university and for fountains.
There is a water treatment plant located right beside our campus area. Although Iraq has a dry climate and doesn’t see much rain, especially since our city Karbala has been hit severely by the impact of climate change, we haven’t seen much rain in the last years, so the amount of rainwater in Iraq is not that much in comparison with other countries; however, when there is rainwater it is discharged directly to university gardens for watering the trees and plants, for the garden sprinkler system and fountains. And as clean drinking water is necessary for sustaining life and due to the contamination of natural freshwater sources, the University of Warith Al-Anbiyaa has an integrated system to purify water at the campus. The water system at the university help in improving the process of transforming wastewater into a clean and recyclable source of drinking water. In this system, the water runs through a series of water filters to remove contaminants and debris and transform wastewater into safe drinking water, water treated by this plant is consumed by students and staff.
