Transcript of WATER MANAGEMENT


1. Collection - Collect rainwater on the roof
2. Temporary storage - Collection tank for initial storage
3. Water purification - Buffering, sedimentation, filtration
4. Storage - Underground rainwater storage tank
5. Usage - Irrigation

1. Rainwater Recycle system

2. Smarter Water Management

3. Low Impact Development (LID)
PROPOSED SOLUTIONS
Rainwater Recycle system in the National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall
WATER MANAGEMENT
Total 525 bodies of water
Is it enough?
taking advantage of the GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION
Science Factor
smartER water management

Fix leaky pipes, save billions.
Up to 50% of the world’s water disappears from leaking pipes (US$14 Billion)


Non-Science Factors
1. Lack of Funds

2. other Social Issues to take care of

Water resource management

the activity of
planning
,
developing
,
distributing
and
managing
the
optimum use of water resources

IMPORTANCE OF WATER
one of the most important and abundant substances on Earth
in the Philippines
“Pasig River is shimmering with oil slicks, has unpleasant odor, dark colored water, hyacinth blooms, and floating garbage and feces.” (WEPA)
In the 1990s, the Pasig River was considered biologically dead
EFFORTS MADE
1. Pasig River Rehabilitation Program (PRRP) and Pasic River Rehabilitation Commision (PRRC)


2. Metro Manila has four water treatment plants

3. Ateneo: Decentralized Wastewater Treatment System (DEWATS)

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
waters, which contain bacteria and viruses that threaten human life.” (greenpeace.org)

Almost all households incur additional expenditures on water treatment and for
bottled water.

Is it enough?
