Drought, population increase, economic overexploitation, among other causes, have turned the scarcity of drinkable water into a severe global problem with uncertain future.
For several areas in this planet, water is becoming an increasingly thrifting resource, so thrifting water is already a priority for those people who care about the environment.
Rainwater harvesting systems are ideal, given their ability to reduce drinking water consumption by up to 50%. Replacing rain water (for non-drinking uses) with rain water is an action that will help sustainability and saving resources. It can be employed in all uses which don't require drinking water: toilet cistern, washing machine, general cleansing, or watering the garden. Rain water is pure in the sense that it doesn't contain calcium nor chemical products, which is an added benefit in terms of pipe maintenance, keeping calcium out of the washing machine, and we water our plants with excellent natural water. Besides the ecological benefits, the considerable economic savings are another good reason for making use of rain water.
In the development of IAC Campus, sustainability aspects are our concern, and that's why a rainwater harvesting implementation plan was approved, and such water storage units are going to be installed in the upcoming years. An initial collection of 600,000 l. (158,503 US gal) is foreseen, significatively contributing to the saving and recycling of water resources.

Every year on March 22, World Water Day is celebrated, with the aim to raise public awareness through organisms and people about the opportunities that can be created for the strengthening of the cooperation and the challenges that represent the managing of the water.

The IAC Campus with its program of sustainable management has approved a plan of use and exploitation of the rainwater that you can see in more detail in these links.

Our effort remains patent in all the parts executed of this plan that has contributed to a more sustainable management on a long-term basis of the water resources.
