Rainwater Harvesting System

The Sunway University rainwater harvesting system was installed in 2015. The rainwater harvesting tank has a storage capacity of 67.5m^3 of water. The harvested rainwater is used for non-potable usage irrigation of campus vegetation.

In 2018, another rainwater harvesting system was installed at the Graduate Centre, and by 2022 the University saved 584 cubic metres of water by reusing harvested rainwater for non-potable purposes.
