Siam University (SU) is one of the leading Thai comprehensive private universities of which “Sustainability” is one of the main missions. The mission is guided by the concept of “Sustainable Development (SD)” and the principle of “Sufficiency Economy Philosophy (SEP)” bestowed by the late King Rama IX. SU has endorsed many sustainability policies and projects including those concerned with ecosystem and water management system. Our target groups include SU staff and students as well as members in Phasi Charoen district. SU has encouraged water conservation and management policies and practices including reduction of water usage program for quite some time. Although piped water is still mainly used, we have installed automated hand washing taps counting to more than 75% of total water appliances. Water from the campus natural pond is used and reused for gardening and washing. After this initial stage, we have planned to do more programs concerning water recycling, reuse, and treatment system under the principle of SEP. Considering that our pond and surrounding canals are connected to Phasi Charoen communities, we hope that our water conservation and management system will not only lead to a more sustainable campus but also a more sustainable district.
