Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham has implemented a number of processes to prevent polluted water from entering the water system, including pollution caused by accidents and incidents at the university. These processes include:

  • Regular water quality monitoring: Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham has a dedicated water quality monitoring team that regularly tests the water quality at all points of entry to the university’s water system. This team uses a variety of testing methods to detect pollutants such as bacteria, chemicals, and heavy metals.
  • Wastewater treatment: All wastewater generated at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham is treated before it is discharged into the environment. The university has a state-of-the-art wastewater treatment plant that uses a variety of technologies to remove pollutants from the wastewater.
  • Spill prevention and response: Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham has a spill prevention and response plan in place to deal with accidental spills of pollutants. The plan includes procedures for identifying and containing spills, cleaning up spills, and disposing of contaminated materials safely.

In addition to these general processes, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham has also implemented a number of specific measures to prevent pollution from entering the water system. For example, the university has:

  • Installed stormwater management systems: Stormwater management systems are designed to collect and filter stormwater runoff before it enters the water system. This helps to remove pollutants such as oil, grease, and sediment from the stormwater.
  • Implemented a rainwater harvesting system: Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham has a rainwater harvesting system that collects rainwater from the roofs of buildings and stores it in underground tanks. This water is then used for irrigation and other non-potable purposes.
  • Installed grease traps in kitchens: Grease traps are designed to trap grease and oil from kitchen wastewater before it enters the sewer system. This helps to prevent these pollutants from entering the water system and clogging pipes.
  • Educated staff and students about pollution prevention: Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham has a number of programs in place to educate staff and students about pollution prevention. These programs cover topics such as proper waste disposal, water conservation, and spill prevention.

In the event of an accident or incident that releases pollutants into the environment, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham’s spill prevention and response plan is activated. This plan includes procedures for:

  • Identifying and containing the spill: The first step is to identify the source of the spill and contain it to prevent it from spreading. This may involve building dikes or using sandbags to divert the flow of the pollutant.
  • Cleaning up the spill: Once the spill has been contained, it is cleaned up using a variety of methods, such as vacuum trucks, absorbent materials, and bioremediation.
  • Disposing of contaminated materials safely: Contaminated materials are disposed of safely in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations.

Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham is committed to protecting the environment and preventing polluted water from entering the water system. The university’s comprehensive pollution prevention program includes regular water quality monitoring, wastewater treatment, spill prevention and response, and educational programs for staff and students.
