Healthy AIT Eco-Campus Through Greener and Diverse Wetlands

Ironically, out of all numerous campus wetlands (ponds, canal networks, reservoirs, lakes, semi-natural swamps, etc) the worst water quality is found in the most prominent one, the front fountain pond near AITCC and Administration building, as well as in its adjoining canal along the SERD building. This was the state over at least last decade, and the quality even exacerbated after the Flood, even after a thorough post-flood pond clean-up and sediment removal.

Web based Water level and Water Quality Monitoring System using Open-Field Server in AIT

Water body such as a moat as pond is a vital element in AIT activity. Monitoring of those water level and quality is essential for flood management and re-use of water, waste water assessment, etc. It plays a crucial role in a living laboratory system. In AIT, water body is used for control water level for flood and also irrigating the lawns and playgrounds, plants and flowers, etc. But there is no such a system that can judge the water level and water quality continuously in real time in AIT. Usually, AIT staff checks with eyes. It is necessary to develop the system to continuously monitor the level and quality of water and promptly sending out warning to AIT community.

An assessment of campus water and wastewater use practices with mitigation strategies.

Principal Investigator: Professor C. Visvanathan Background and Rationale: AIT, is a cluster of academic buildings and residential colonies consumes a significant amount of water and also generates wastewater. The flow loop of the institute is a linear one. The water used on the campus is directed from public works department and AIT has recently installed a wastewater treatment plant but without any reuse policy. Despite the capacity w.r.t excellence in knowledge, technology and resources, AIT succumb ignorance and an unfortunate lack of a visionary lead on the institutional waste recovery. Thus to assess the current use and reuse potential interms of water and wastewater, a baseline study is deemed necessary. After which some pilot studies can be conducted to suggest some changes at policy level.
