Following acute water shortage and huge expenditure incurred on water supplied by the Kerala Water Authority (KWA), the Cochin University of Science and Technology (Cusat) has decided to build a pond and harvest rainwater in the campus.

While presenting the budget recently, university authorities drew the attention of syndicate members on the heavy non-plan expenditure incurred on water supplied by KWA, which levies commercial rates from Cusat.

Further, it was suggested to put a rainwater harvesting mechanism in place to ensure that all rainwater from high areas in the campus was effectively diverted towards the low-lying area near the Athithi Bhavan. This would augment water supply to the pond proposed to be constructed there. This will also help to develop this area into a ‘green’ zone. The budget also suggested exploring the feasibility of using solar energy in an extensive manner.
