These recycled water is used for non-portable (not for drinking) purposes within campus such as gardening, toilet flushing, floor cleaning, bike cleaning and construction activities i.e. concrete mixing. By recycling water, campus could reduce the volume of water used in each activities up to 60,000 m3/year. The following figures present the implementation of water recycling program of KMUTT.
