This Masters thesis was written in the context of a climate project. It was conducted at Valley View University (VVU), a private Seventh Day Adventist university in Ghana. This study investigates water management practices and suggests further development steps. The university is facing challenges such as economical constraints, increasing number of students, water quantity and water quality problems. Little money is available for proper operation and maintenance (O&M) of water supply and sanitation (WS&S). The actual water demand of people living on campus cannot be met. A future increase in student numbers and possible sachet water production will exceed the supply possibilities of existing resources even more. Water infrastructure periodically breaks down. Drinking water quality cannot be guaranteed for water supplied on campus. Without treatment, iron concentrations and turbidity are often too high in groundwater. Concentrations of E.coli and Enterococcus above the drinking water requirements (WHO) have been measured in the universitys supply network, especially where rainwater collection systems are in use. Until this study, the university had little knowledge about their resources; thus, decision making about water management issues was not easy. This study summarizes necessary knowledge about water resources (ground-, rain-, grey water) available on campus, including quantitative and qualitative evaluations. Water supply is compared with actual consumption and demand. Water losses, unmetered consumption and unfulfilled demands are problems VVU has to face. Management proposals to improve the water system are presented. Furthermore, this masters thesis includes an evaluation of filtration units, whose implementation are currently being discussed. Moreover, impacts of groundwater extraction, rainwater supply, communication with stakeholders and demonstration of activities are discussed in the context of the projects implemented at VVU.
