Implementation of SDGs 6 at FTUI

6.2 Water consumption per person (revised for Impact 2021)

6.2.1 Water consumption tracking

Measure the total volume of water used in the university that is taken from mains supply, desalinated, or extracted from rivers, lakes, or aquifers?

To cover the need for clean water on campus, UI cooperates with Depok’s Municipal Waterworks, Perusahaan Daerah Air Minum (PDAM), that provides clean water supplies. UI monitors not only the water usage in the campus area every month but also the rate of clean water resources in the campus area every 6 months. The result is reported to Depok’s local government through DELLH (RKL-UPL) UI’s campus area report. The total water usage in year 2019 was 200,313 m3.

6.2.2 Water consumption per person

Volume of water used in the university: Inbound (treated/extracted water)

The total water usage in year 2019 was 200,313 m3.

6.3 Water usage and care

6.3.1 Wastewater treatment

A process in place to treat wastewater.

Faculty of Medicine has installed the domestic wastewater treatment plant or IPAL (Instalasi Pengolahan Air Limbah) to recycle water. The recycled water is streamed to infiltration wells, which then can be used as reserved water resources. The capacity is 30 m3/hour with water sourced from Sewage Treatment Plant with a capacity of 11 m3/hour. The recycled water is utilized to flush toilets.

6.3.2 Preventing water system pollution

Processes to prevent polluted water entering the water system, including pollution caused by accidents and incidents at the university.

To solve water pollution in the campus area, Universitas Indonesia conducts environmental monitoring and evaluation. From the result, UI received Environmental Documents (Dokumen Lingkungan Hidup) in the form of Environmental Evaluation Document (Dokumen Evaluasi Lingkungan Hidup (DELH)) and Environmental License from Depok and Jakarta’s BLH (Environmental Agency). The Monitoring of Environmental Management Plans (Rencana Pengelolaan Lingkungan Hidup (RKL)) and Environmental Monitoring Plans (Rencana Pemantauan Lingkungan Hidup (RPL)) by Universitas Indonesia must be reported to instances in charge of environmental management at the Capital, Provincial, and City levels.

6.3.3 Free Drinking Water Provided

FTUI provides dispensers in every building so that students/employees can refill drinking water using drinking bottles or glasses.

6.3.4 Water-conscious building standards

Apply building standards to minimise water use

Universitas Indonesia provides free drinking water for all faculty members and students, by placing drinking fountain facilities in all faculties mosque, and student facilities. Drinking fountains can be found in most faculties at UI. Drinking fountains are also available at other facilities that are frequently used by college students such as dormitories, the new Pusgiwa building, and UI’s mosque.

6.3.5 Waste Water Treatment

Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) is installed in the Metallurgical & Materials Engineering Department. The output of this tool is to clean water which is channeled to infiltration wells next to the Department building. It is then planned that there would be two additional units that will be installed in the Department of Civil Engineering and the Department of Chemical Engineering.

Wastewater Treatment Plant (IPAL) is installed in the canteen to recycle dishwashing waste water. This tool precipitates food residue and then the water that has no sediment will be flowed to the WWTP using anaerobic bacteria. The output of this tool is clean water that flows to the ornamental plant area.

6.4 Water reuse (revised for Impact 2021)

6.4.1 Water re-use policy

Have a policy to maximise water reuse across the university?

In the Faculty of Engineering, water reservoirs were installed and filled with clean water. The water reservoirs are used for washing hands before and after entering the FTUI building area. The water is produced manually, by stepping on the pedal on the water reservoir with a regulated water discharge (One of the efforts to save water and save electricity too).

Moreover, FTUI already has a policy on clean water conservation on campus, namely the Decree of the FTUI Dean Number: 1605/D/SK/FTUI/2013 concerning Clean Water Conservation Policy in the FTUI Environment which was set on 18 November 2013.
