The following measures are taken for the conservation of water

Water distributions in the campus are well established with adequate facilities to fulfill the needs of users.

Rain water is also one of the sources of water available in the college. Nearly 3 water harvesting tanks are available to collect rain water. Ground water from the overheads tank is distributed to all buildings inside the campus through taps.

A well laid network is arranged to distribute the water. This ground water is pumped into storage tanks located at various places inside the college campus.

A separate committee is available to ensure that there are no leakages and wastages. Plumbers are available 24x7 to maintain the distribution system.

Immediate actions are taken to restrict wastage of water, whenever any problems related to plumbing are identified. All valves are checked properly to avoid leakages. The water users are educated thoroughly to use the water efficiently without any wastage.

Water is purified and desalinated in the RO plant and supplied for drinking purpose. The rejected water from RO is collected and it is used for campus gardening purposes.

The plants that require less water are planted and are maintained properly inside the college campus. The species of plants that are available locally are selected. Waste water is being recycled and is distributed in to lawns and gardens.

TKEC has set-up the rain harvesting unit in different places within the college campus, canteen and hostels, which has the total storage of rainwater harvesting bit 1 (26.5ftX9.5ftX10ft) and pit 2 (17.5ftX9.5ftx10ft) have a water storage capacity of 71,133 and 47,016 liters respectively. The college adopted several rainwater methods according to the Government norms and terms which include rainwater rooftop harvesting units and surface run-off rainwater harvesting.


The bore well recharge project was implemented in TKEC under the guidance of government norms. The average depth of their bore wells was 400-900 feet’s, 4 bore wells recharges were implemented by water management system.

Bore wells are constructed in feasible points inside the college premises near rain water harvesting sumps for easy recharge.

Rain water stored can be effectively used to revive the bore wells. The bore wells are periodically monitored and maintained by the plumbers and if any problems are identified, immediate actions are taken.


Overhead tanks are constructed at the top of buildings for the purpose of holding water supply which is a part of water distribution system.

For storage or water in overhead tanks, the water is pumped from the sump. The water stored in the tanks is used for daily requirements in the campus such as rest rooms, hand wash, cleaning purposes, gardening etc.

The tanks are periodically monitored and maintained for leakage and blocks and immediate necessary actions are taken for maintenance.


Reverse osmosis is a membrane based process technology to purify water by separating the dissolved solids from the feed stream resulting in permeate and reject stream for a wide range of applications in domestic as well as industrial applications. In TKEC has installed RO plant output capacity of 750 & 500 Liter/hour and it purifies the bore well water to drinking water.


In our TKEC RO water are further purified through the water Doctor, which is distributing the purified water to the students. We have 12 water doctors to distribute the purified water with 3 levels of filtration. The Purified water is conditions by three different methods of hot, normal and cool water


Sewage Treatment plant prevents the environment from waste produced by human beings. The raw sewage is first collected through sewer and send to STP which has a capacity to treat 2.50 Lakhs Liters/day . Treated water sample is collected and tested in the laboratory for satisfying Indian effluent disposal standards. Once it satisfies, treated water is used for domestic purposes.

The waste water front the college campus is collected in the sewage treatment plant (STP).

The waste water is subjected to three main stages of waste water treatment process namely primary treatment, secondary treatment and tertiary water treatment.

The treated waste water is used for gardening purposes and watering the lawn to reduce water conservation.
