Why the Philippines hasn’t adapt or develop an effective system of water management like that of other institutions such as Ateneo
A land planning and engineering design approach for managing storm water runoff.
A Mini “Treatment Train” (Joilet Junior College)
The college uses the process of bioretention, where contaminants and sedimentation are removed from stormwater funoff.
Low Impact Development
only 39 percent of the 525 water bodies may be considered as potential sources of drinking water
“lack of sewage treatment system allows more than 90
percent of inadequately treated domestic sewage to be discharged into surface
