Mohamad, Firdaus syuhada (2005) A case study on water conservation awareness water quality at UiTM Pulau Pinang colleges / Firdaus syuhada Mohamad. [Student Project] (Submitted)


As Penang marches towards the 21st Century, our water demand will continue to
increase, even as water supply issues become increasingly complex. As such, we need
to manage water supply more effectively and innovatively. The objective of this study
is to observe the level of water conservation among UiTM Pulau Pinang students and
to determine the value of pH, conductivity, Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD),
Suspended Solid (SS) and the quality of drinking water supplied in Kolej Zamrud. For
the study of water conservation awareness, an interview session is conduct and the
questionnaires distribute randomly to 400 students in colleges such as Kolej Zamrud,
Kolej Baiduri and Kolej Mutiara. Generally the questionnaires were distributed by the
author to every college by hand and respondents will answer the questions on the
spot. The aspects that have been observed are to identify the level of conservation and
the way they using the water. Otherwise, this is to generate a good attitude among
them. The data obtained been analyzed by using Microsoft Excel software and SPSS
windows version 7.5. In water quality study, samples were taken from water tank and
tap from each level in Kolej Zamrud at UiTM Pulau Pinang. The laboratory test on
water quality was conducted. The samples were taken 3 times every week in one month
duration, started from February 16, 2005 until March 10, 2005. Each sample taken was
tested to determine the values of pH, SS, conductivity and BOD. The comparison were
made between the result obtain with the standard quality of water. It is expected that
the result fullfill the National Standard for Drinking Water. Suggestion and
recommendation will be made from this study.
Keyword: Water conservation, water quality, BOD5, pH, suspended solid (SS).
