Rainwater in kindergarten

Water management is an important issue in urban design due to the growing concern of water scarcity. Rainfall patterns are likely to change in the future as a consequence of climate change that may affect the performance of a residential rainwater harvesting system (i.e. water savings, reliability and water security), based on the projected future rainfall conditions. As a result, rainwater harvesting systems (RWH) have received notable attention as an alternative water source. RWH is receiving renewed interest as a green infrastructure practice in the face of necessary adaptation to global climate change. Despite Albania has high quantity of water resources some regions in Albania are facing water scarcity nowadays. The increase of the population of the Tirana city has brought increase in the demand for water. The increasing water demand has triggered the initiatives to look for alternative water supply.

Developed by Ekolevizja NGO

Before using the collected rainwater, the quantity collected during the first rainfall should not be introduced into the system (on deposits and for use). Then, before the use of the collected rainwater, the rainwater reservoir will be verified, if they do not collect impurities. Their purification will be performed and a complete cycle of purification will be carried out with rain water.

TRL5. Laboratory testing of integrated system
Technology validated in relevant environment. Fidelity of breadboard technology increases significantly. The basic technological components are integrated with reasonably realistic supporting elements so they can be tested in a simulated environment. Examples include “high-fidelity” laboratory integration of components. A pilot case this innovation is done in one Kindergarten in Tirana, the extent of this innovation should be to develop the innovation in an attractive place for children.

See more information about this level and the TRL and SRL levels.

The main components of the system have been tested separately, and an initial integration exercise has been conducted.

How does it work?

The water used for flushing toilets and washing clothes doesn’t need to be treated to potable, drinking water standards. Such savings would greatly reduce the monthly water bill, and help in a variety of other ways.Rainwater is free and although climate change and changing weather patterns may affect its regularity and intensity it should be part of the solution to our water future. It is cleaner than most other sources. Through this project will be improved the water supply for some Kindergartens, will be reduced the urban floods, ensuring a quality of clothes washing, bathing water reducing detergents, reducing costs of kinder gardens in water bill.

Limitations/conditions under which this innovation does not work or is less effective

Added value
The difference is to use the collected rainwater deposit in an attractive fountain or and educative experimental place to explain the water cycle.
