SDG 6 Clean Water & Sanitation

Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.

The University ensures provision of free drinking water for students, staff and visitors. It also aims at developing management and guardianship plans for on campus and surrounding waterways and on-campus biodiversity and ecosystems. The University has set up Reverse Osmosis (RO) plants on campus. This ensures that the drinking water goes through a thorough sanitation process for any consumption on campus. To ensure sustainable management of water, JGU has constructed rainwater harvesting system in the campus. The university added 10 pits in the financial year 2020-21 and in total there are 48 pits constructed to recharge the ground water. To reduce the dependence on ground water, the university has installed three Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs) in the campus. Treated wastewater from STP is recycled and reused in flushing, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) cooling & landscaping whereas excess treated water is used for construction purpose and road site greenery near the site. JGU takes sanitation very seriously and the University has separate toilets for males and females at every block. The Government of India has recognised JGU’s commitment to maintaining highest standards of sanitation and cleanliness by conferring it with top Swachhta Rankings among all higher educational institutions in India for several years in a row. While the University has set the goal of becoming a zero waste generation campus, it also prevents liquid waste from intruding into surface drains or ground water, and recycles wastewater for reuse.
