Water Usage Survey Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Water Usage Survey The Koç School
  • 2. Aims
    • Water is the source of life. But how well do we use this source? In order to answer this question we made a survey that will give us same idea about how water is used among students. We have three major aims in this survey: to determine the students water usage habits, w ater conservation awareness and daily distribution of water usage.
  • 3.
    • Our purpose was to make comparisons between 3 Comenius Partner Schools, while doing that - in order to be more valid - we sent these surveys to 11 sister schools in 9 different cities. In this survey we asked the students how much water do they use, for which purposes and how efficiently do they use it? We made comparison s between schools according to criteria’s which are place of living, family income, number of members in the family etc.

  • 14. How many m^3 of water are used per month in your house?
    • Most of the students who filled these questionnaires didn’t answer this question according to their monthly bills as we asked them to. And many of them gave quite unexpected results. Therefore our results are not accurate as we would like them to be.

  • 17. Source of drinking water
    • Students living in big cities choose to drink bottle water rather than tap water. Because in big cities there is a high risk of the contamination of water in the water distribution pipes or in the tanks of the apartment buildings. In order to avoid that risk they drink bottle water.

  • 19. Amount of drinking water
    • Around one third of the students don’t drink as much water as they ought to. A normal person should drink about 2,5 L per day. These results show that students are not aware of the importance of water on human health. Middle School and High School teachers should emphasize the importance of drinking the right amount of water.

  • 37. Which uses the most water in your house?
    • Most of the water used in the house came out to be for cleaning purposes especially for personal hygiene. Since students answered these surveys they probably didn’t considered the amount of water that is used in their house by other members of the family. Car washing made the least amount.
  • 38. How does your toilet use water? a) Each time it flushes, all the water insde the tank is used b) It has 2 buttons so I can choose how much water to use c) It has be e n adjusted so that only half the water flushes each time 100.0 100.0 64 Total 100.0 15.6 15.6 10 c 84.4 14.1 14.1 9 b 70.3 68.8 68.8 44 a 1.6 1.6 1.6 1 Valid Cumulative Percent Valid Percent Percent Frequency

    • Most of the toilets don’t have any kind of adjustments which shows that students don’t have a clear concern about the amount of water used in the toilets.

  • 41.
    • Most of the students aren’t aware of the amount of water they can save if they use water twice. There are either not concerned or they don’t have chance to use it because they are living in apartment buildings.
  • 42. How do you use your washing machine and dish washer? a) Full loads b) Half load wash c) With a program that uses less water for half loads 100.0 100.0 64 Total 100.0 14.1 14.1 9 c 85.9 3.1 3.1 2 b 82.8 81.3 81.3 52 a 1.6 1.6 1.6 1 Valid Cumulative Percent Valid Percent Percent Frequency

    • Students are mostly responsible and concerned about using both the electricity and water economically.
  • 44. How many times do you open the tap? 06.00 am- 13.00 pm
  • 45. How many times do you open the tap? 14.00 pm- 24.00 pm In both of the graphs above we didn’t find the answers realistic. But the graphs show that students open the tap oftener in the second half of the day. The range of number of openings is larger in the second half .
  • 46. For what purposes do you open the tap?
    • 1)Personal Cleaning
    • 2)Clothes Washing
    • 3)Dish Washing
    • 4)Household Cleaning
    • 5)Cooking
    • 6)Drinking water
    • 7)Fruits and vegetables washing
    • 8)Other
  • 47. For what purposes do you open the tap? 06.00-10.00
  • 48. For what purposes do you open the tap? 11.00-14.00
  • 49. For what purposes do you open the tap? 15.00-18.00
  • 50. For what purposes do you open the tap? 19.00-21.00
  • 51. For what purposes do you open the tap? 22.00-24.00
    • In all of the graphs above personal cleaning came out to be th e main reason why students use water. But as we see in the graphs, although personal cleaning shown with number one is the undeniable leader in the early hours of the day, other reasons start to show up in the graphs as the day goes on. Most of the cleaning is centered in the middle of the day or around 21.00 hours at night. Most of the fruit and vegetable washing centers around night hours.
  • 52. Conclusion
    • The answers that we got from the students show that m o st o f t h e K o ç s t uden t s ha v e c o n c e r n s a b o u t u s i n g t h e w a t er efficiently therefore trying to avoid wasting water. But there is a percent of students who don’t care about the water that their life depends on. So teachers should emphasize the risks of a life without clean water and make the students more aware of the possible consequences of their indifferent acts.
