DESIGN OF A GREYWATER TREATMENT AND RECYCLING SYSTEM FOR THE COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE AND VETERINARY SCIENCES, UNIVERSITY OF NAIROBI
Documentation : 

The College of Agriculture and Veterinary Science, University of Nairobi, is home to 2, 783 students as of the current statistics. The campus is located off Kapenguria Road, 15 kms to the Northwest of Nairobi. Within the hostel residences, most, if not all of the waste water generated from various uses within is simply directed away into the sewerage system. With water costs rising by the day due its scarcity along with the dynamics of demand and supply, there is a clarion call to find ways of utilizing the water resources present.

This project proposes a grey water treatment system that will provide treated and recycled water fit for reuse in generation of Blackwater through flushing of toilets and cleaning of the hostels, and after further treatment, could be clean enough for irrigation purposes and washing of laundry. The grey water recycling systemcomponents are designed and they consist of: Diversion system, piping system, filtration system, storage system and the pumping system. They various systems were tested on the EPANET software and it proved successful.

 

The study begins with the introduction, objectives set to be met, and the literature review together with the theoretical frame work highlighted. The methodology, datacollected, results and analysis are discussed within. Finally, the conclusions recommendation and design drawings are provided.
